The Boys Are Angry
- AJ - A young man. A realist.
- Quinn - A young man. An idealist.
- The Girl - A young woman. An ideal.
An old house. A very old house. A compound. Fallen into weird and menacing disrepair.
Fall. Then winter. In the age of the new wild west: the internet.
Praise for The Boys Are Angry
“Bold, fresh approach”
“From the moment an invective-fueled, misogynistic spew presumably tapped out on a blogger’s keyboard is posted to the audience in the form of a frontal, ferociously lit soliloquy, The Boys Are Angry begins its fearless transition from social network screed into a morality play mobilized by the conventions of live theater.”
“Under Sam Plattus’ direction, the theater provides an intimately affecting laboratory for wry epidemiological research.”
“Quinn’s Girl...just might be hearth-and-home writ large”
One of “7 Shows to See at FringeNYC 2015”
“The whimsical way in which Eddy plays [The Girl] and the interaction she has with the boys is the highlight of this show.”
“The Boys Are Angry is a great example of what a Fringe Show is: daring, full of ideas, great talent, and the venue to make the magic happen.”
“Eddy’s ear for the puerile humor of straight twenty-something guys feels spot-on, and Johnson and Houran expertly capture the complex nuances of their co-dependent relationship.”
“The Boys Are Angry is an intelligent exploration of young white masculinity, all the more arresting having been written by a woman.”
