It’s Gabe’s senior year and he’s going to make the most of it. He’s the chair of the LGBT Students Group, and he has one eye on a future in politics and one eye on Drew, the editor of the university newspaper. But as Gabe and his friends throw themselves into campus life, unexpected events reveal a darker, lonelier world inhabited by a freshman called Teddy Ferrara. Dominic Cooke directs the UK premiere of Christopher Shinn’s insightful and revealing play which, inspired by real events, explores society’s uncomfortable embrace of the outsider.
