Beautiful Boy is a play written by Associate Artistic Director Pete Pryor which explores the process of a father coming to terms with his son’s diagnosis of autism. It captures the frustration, anger, humor, and most of all love, experienced by ALL families.
People’s Light launched our “Hatchling Reading Series” this season to hear and discuss plays-in-progress by members of our Resident Company and local artistic community. A Hatchling Production takes the next step in this development process. This bare-bones staging of Beautiful Boy provides Pete Pryor the ability to explore his script in space with actors and designers. Each night, after the play, there will be an open discussion with the audience. This discussion will offer our audiences the opportunity to be part of a distinctive theatrical experience where their imagination, energy, and responses directly feed the early life of a new play.
