Bobby Steggert, Heidi Armbruster to Lead Cast of Anna Ziegler's Boy
The new drama will be presented by Keen Company and Ensemble Studio Theatre.
Keen Company has announced the cast for its upcoming production of Boy, a new play by Anna Ziegler. Presnted with Ensemble Studio Theatre, the work will begin performances February 23 at the Clurman Theatre at Theatre Row, with opening Night set for March 10. Linsay Firman will direct.
Keen Company describes Boy as follows: "Inspired by a true story, Boy explores the tricky terrain of finding love amidst the confusion of sexual identity, and the inextricable bond between a doctor and patient. In the 1960s, a well-intentioned doctor convinces the parents of a male infant to raise their son as a girl after a terrible accident. Two decades later, the repercussions of that choice continue to unfold. A story of the blinding power of love and the complicated mystery of one's perception of self, Boy is a moving play that calls into question how we become who we are."
The company will be made up of Bobby Steggert (Mothers & Sons), Heidi Armbruster (Disgraced), Paul Niebanck (Barbecue), and Rebecca Rittenhouse (Blood & Oil). The design team includes Sandra Goldmark (set design), Sydney Maresca (costumes), Nick Francone (lighting), Shane Rettig (sound), and Ricola Wille (props).
