dark play or stories for boys
by Carlos Murillo
Directed by Michael Michetti
October 04 - November 18, 2007

A story of deception, fluid personality, and sexual license in the chat rooms of the World Wide Web.  A young boy's fictitious Internet identity starts out as a harmless fiction, but once his virtual relationship steps into the realm of real space, this tale of obsession, love, and betrayal spirals out of control with catastrophic consequences.
