You have everything you need.

Quiet things happen at Mayview Park in the middle of the night; it's where young Kay has a lot of his firsts. Tonight, though, he's waiting - and something else is not far behind. When the lines blur between anonymous and intimate, what Kay does in the night may not stay hidden for long. Boy Trouble explores queer coming-of-age and masculinity in a technological horror story of anonymous sex and the digital era.

One act, runtime 70 minutes.

Recommended ages 16+.

Content warnings: Violence, graphic sexuality, strong coarse language.


"...impressive for both its sharp, funny writing and for the solo performance by Max Hanic, a young actor to keep your eye on." -12thnight.ca

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

"For a beautifully-conceived and executed coming-of-age/coming out comic-drama, you want to line up for Boy Trouble."
