Summary

Those melodies, the pitch harmonies and
Rhythms, those are the maps and guides to the Promised
Land. 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.
