Edgar, the Bat Boy, is found in cave in West Virginia and then brought-up by a well-meaning family. Still the outsider, Edgar struggles to fit and survive in a world that is not ready to accept him. Not an old-school musical, Bat Boy has reached cult status in the US and abroad. With serious themes, such as racism, extremism, and revenge, and musical styles from rap to opera, the play examines societal hypocrisy using humor, irony and camp-style horror.
