    One thought on “Boy with Beer”

    1. As a play about love, the pressures of machismo, and the burden of a restricted sense of identity, I feel Boy with Beer is a modern-day classic that will always return. It is funny, sexy, subtle, and oh so spot on. Nicely done.

    2. Nearly twenty-five years after its London debut, it's great to see that BOY WITH BEER is still considered "a pertinent and articulate insight into contemporary Black male sexuality,” with talk of a possible theatrical revival. Who would have thought it?
