Our Boy
by Southwest Theatre Productions

Aug. 23, 2019


Mark is a small town "golden boy", sporty, handsome, popular, kind. Or at least that’s something his parents can agree on. When he's implicated in something they could never imagine, they begin to realize how little they actually trust him, or each other. A potent look at the shifting sands of parenting and responsibility.
