Open Auditions for The Boys In The Band
By Mart Crowley, Directed by Matt Hamilton-Snow
June 18 & 19 / 6:30pm – 9:30pm / BMO Studio Theatre, 112 Princess Street
A ground-breaking work in American theatre. Mart Crowley’s first play, The Boys in the Band, is considered to be the first truly honest portrayal of the lives of contemporary homosexuals.
Eight gay men gather for a birthday party in the early 1970s in New York. As the evening wears on, fueled by drugs and alcohol, bitter and unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong.
