Genre: Comedy, Drama, Lesbian+Gay
Written by Carol Carpenter, Directed by Joan Kane

A West Texas matriarch is enraged by the news that her gay grandson has been the victim of a hate crime committed by his own father. As the boy battles for his life, the family must come together and decide who among them is best to care for this child and what place can they find for him in their world.

“Carol Carpenter is one of the most promising Southern female voices of our generation and we are honored to be presenting such a brave story on our stage. This will also be the fifth show we bring to The Theater at The 14th Street Y, a true theatrical hub for the creatively brave.” - shares Co-Artistic Director Antonio Minino.

About the Company: Manhattan Theatre Works

 Manhttan Theatre Works is dedicated to discovering new plays that challenge our perception of diversity (ethnic, economic, gender, sexuality or creed). We foster today's innovative playwrights that boldly take risks in theme, structure, time-period and location by collaborating with exceptional theatre artists to develop their plays through our Living Room Series, Newborn Festival and Mainstage productions.

MTWorks, originally known as Maieutic Theatre Wroks, started producing thought provoking new plays in the Fall of 2006 with Folie a Deux: Insanity in Pairs, written by Co-founder and current Co-Artistic Director David Stallings, directed by Co-founder and former Executive Director Cristina Alicea and produced by Co-founder and current Co-Artistic Director Antonio Minino. What started as a trio of like-minded artists has grown into a family of over 50 talented MTWorkers dedicated to developing new ground breaking diverse plays from around the world.
