The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley

Presented by Workshop Theatre at Columbia College's Cottingham Theatre, Columbia SC

Jan 17 - 26 2020
The Boys in the Band by Mart Crowley

The Boys in the Band Fault lines beneath friendships, self-inflicted heartache come to light in this groundbreaking play

Workshop Theatre kicks off 2020 with Mart Crowley’s poignant play The Boys in the Band, on stage from January 17-26.

In his Upper East Side apartment, Michael is throwing a birthday party for Harold, a self-avowed “thirty-two-year-old, pockmarked, Jew fairy,” complete with surprise gift: “Cowboy,” a street hustler. As the evening wears on – fueled by drugs and alcohol – bitter, unresolved resentments among the guests come to light when a game of “Truth” goes terribly wrong.
