dark play or stories for boys
March 6 - March 22, 2009
When 14-year old Nick comes across a naively worded ad from 16-year-old Adam reading "I want to fall in love," he's blown away. What is this love? Already bored with cyber sex and posting fake online ads, Nick invents the girl of Adams' dreams, Rachel, and Adam and Rachel fall hard. But as the cyber relationship heightens, so do the emotional stakes in the real world, until the two collide with devastating consequences. Nick's seemingly outrageous deceptions are closely based on true events which took place in Manchester, England, where, for the first time in British history, a person was convicted for inciting their own murder.
