NEW YORK, August 7 — In “Gay Boy,” a solo play by JD Stewart, a man named Gay Boy experiences life as an English teacher in Daegu, South Korea. He appears at first to be a stereotypical young gay man–highly sexed, sassy and reveling in both. But when his vulnerability surfaces following a one-night stand, truths of his past are finally revealed. In a candid storytelling style, JD Stewart mixes fact and fiction, frankness and humor to offer an alternative perspective on how gay boys are viewed. Drawing on a society the West knows little about, Stewart illuminates an aspect of gay culture we think we understand, only to learn that sometimes what we think we know is more harmful than good. Theater for the New City’s Dream Up Festival will present the play’s world premiere September 6 to 17, directed by Ashley Wren-Collins.
