The production is set to begin previews May 5 towards a May 18 opening. The new work will run through June 27 at the company's space at 354 West 45th Street. Its current production of The Stendhal Syndrome plays at the troupe's new home, 59E59.
Director Joe Calarco reteams with up-and-coming playwright Julia Jordan on her latest work Boy. The director also helmed Jordan's Summer of the Swans at the Lucille Lortel Theatre, as well as R&J — the four-man adaptation of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.
The drama, Boy, focuses on two young men who are searching for their place in the world. The play received an honorable mention from the Susan Smith Blackburn Award committee in 2001.
Jordan has witnessed three of her works on New York stages this season as the prolific up-and-comer's St. Scarlet played at The Ontological, Summer of the Swans at the Lucille Lortel and her Tatjana in Color ran at The Culture Project's 45 Bleecker Street Theatre.
