Choir Boy, Paperback / softback Book

Choir Boy Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback


Those melodies, the pitch harmonies andRhythms, those are the maps and guides to the PromisedLand.

Not on this earth but elsewhere . . . Determined to make his mark like those before him, Pharus is hell-bent on being the best choir leader in the school's fifty-year history.

First he must gain the respect of his peers, but he's an outsider in a world steeped in rites and rituals, a community that demands he conform. Tarell Alvin McCraney's piercing new play set in an all boys, all black American prep school scores a gospel refrain of the politics of minority and masculinity. Choir Boy premiered at the Theatre Upstairs at the Royal Court, London, in September 2012.

It was commissioned by, and is a co-production with Manhattan Theatre Club and was supported by The Andrew W.

Mellon Foundation.
