Bootleg Theater is proud to announce THE GOOD BOY, the premiere production of a solo performance piece that tells the funny, moving and sometimes devastating story of his life as a little boy trying to find his voice in the middle of a large family raised by two complicated and loving deaf parents. Set in 1960’s Pasadena and with the use of sign, speech and song, Michael shares his family’s stories of triumph, grief, dignity and shared respect. Learning to communicate his own feelings, dealing with adult responsibilities far beyond his young years and waiting for an emotional echo in a silent home, Michael is always the good boy who never quite feels as though he is good enough. He takes us into his young adult life struggling to find independence while never giving up in his quest for a deeper connection to his distant and remote father.
Thematic content includes: Bring Kids, Redemption, Love, Singing, Humor.
