Now That We’re Men: The Play
Originally Aired: Saturday, April 28, 2018
Now That We're Men
In the weeks leading up to prom, the close friendships of five high school guys are put to the test…’cause Andrew must be gay, Marcus knocked up his girl, Derek’s falling in love, Nick is a little too addicted to fetish porn, and Evan pushed a hook-up too far and downed a bottle of pills.
Born from conversations with teenage boys, Now That We’re Men lays bare what’s happening in high schools across the country. Their unfiltered stories — of adolescence, power, consent, porn, manning up and getting laid — come straight from the mouths of these guys, as they are figuring out what it means to be a man.
Written and directed by Katie Cappiello and featuring Jordan Eliot, Caleb Grandoit, Fred Hechinger, Alphonso Jones, and Rayshawn Richardson.
A talkback with the cast and creative team will follow the performance.
One of the most stunning and powerful works I’ve encountered in decades of theatergoing. — Jonathan Marc Sherman, award-winning playwright
