The Boys Are Angry follows three young millennials: AJ, a Reddit philosopher, semi- professional blogger, and militant Men’s-Rights-Activist-cum-Red-Piller; Quinn, a software programmer, self-described romantic, and AJ’s childhood friend; and The Girl, a friendly baker, the object of Quinn’s affections, and the blank canvas onto which both men project their fantasies. From a small, dark wing of a large, run-down compound and through a series of conversations both real and imagined, the play investigates on- and offline communication; present-day American masculinity; and the violent hatred of women at the dark heart of the Manosphere.
