The work focuses on Seth, a troubled 16-year-old, trying to come to terms with his sexuality in the face of ridicule. In addition, the play honestly depicts Seth’s sexual awakening as he crushes on his bully’s younger brother and discovers that his feelings may be reciprocated. Seth is also involved in a questionable relationship with his baseball coach and must deal with the return of his estranged mother. He soon finds his life spinning out of control and contemplates suicide."
