The Boy Sonata

The Boy Sonata is solo storytelling work in 5 parts mimicking the sonata form, the work details seminal moments in the life of a central character, “The Boy,” from the ages of 6 to 17. Each monologue details a moment, an hour, or a day when things become much more beautifully and tragically complicated in the life of this small southern boy. With tales of innocence gained and lost, it is a heartbreakingly funny tribute to the voice of a child developing his unique understanding of the world. The internal three sections of the work were presented as part of the Hot Festival at Dixon Place in 2013. The complete premiered at The Wild Project in 2104.
