Based on the characters and story of the 2019 Fringe hit, Boy Trouble is back featuring an entirely new production.

Kay and Anthony have been friends for a long time. Or, like, they grew up together, anyway. As two of the only gay kids around, they keep each other’s secrets well. Tonight, on an autumn night in 2015, they don't talk much anymore - but their years of tiptoe crossed lines, unsaid things, and almosts-but-maybe-nots are busting at the seams. Boy Trouble is a cutting, physical, and playful interrogation of toxic masculinity and casual sex in the Grindr age.

Presented as part of the Edmonton Fringe Theatre Spotlight Series.


"...impressive for both its sharp, funny writing and for the solo performance by Max Hanic, a young actor to keep your eye on."

"Well written and sensitively performed ... Hanic is excellent."
-Edmonton Journal
