Canadian Premiere
Written by Tarell Alvin McCraney, the 2017 Oscar-winning writer of “Moonlight”
Directed by Mike Payette
October 9 to 28, 2018

The Charles R. Drew Prep School for Boys is dedicated to the formation of strong, ethical Black men. Pharus wants nothing more than to take his rightful place as leader of the school’s legendary choir. Will the school have the courage to stand behind Pharus as God made him, or muzzle a voice born to sing and begging to be heard? A moving portrait of young Black men focused on their dreams, navigating the confusing social and sexual mores characteristic of this pivotal age, and buoyed by the uplifting harmonies of a cappella gospel and R&B.

Tarell Alvin McCraney is the first recipient of The New York Times’ Outstanding Playwright Award.

“A gorgeous evocation of history, hope and pain […] complex and beautiful” – Chicago Tribune

“Stirring and stylishly told drama […] explores race and sexuality and the graces and gravity of history” – NY Daily News

“When they raise their voices in unison, they offer a glimpse of a world in which the cruelty that can divide and destroy is dissolved in a graceful, embracing order.” – New York Times
