Farm Boys



Blue Heron Theatre presents the New York premiere of Farm Boys, by Amy Fox and Dean Gray from Will Fellows' book of oral histories, Farm Boys: Lives of Gay Men from the Rural Midwest,. Jim Pelegano directs. When he unexpectedly inherits a small farm in his hometown, John leaves New York City to travel to central Wisconsin and reacquaint himself with the farming lifestyle. But the ghosts of John's past -- including a relationship he had with the farm's original owner while still a teenager -- cast a shadow over his current romance with his partner Kim, a native New Yorker and choreographer. Judged by a community fearful of homosexuality and pressured to sell the property by a corporation that's slowly extinguishing small farmers, John must ultimately determine where he and Kim can create a home for themselves. David Drake and Thomas James O'Leary head the cast that also features Joan Grant, Craig Jorczak, and Jim Madden.
