Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta presents the Australian Premiere of Choir Boy by Academy Award®-Winning Writer, Tarell Alvin McCraney. 

Choir Boy is a Tony Award® winning play – threaded throughout with soul-stirring a cappella gospel hymns. It is a moving story of sexuality, race, hope, gospel music, and a young gay man finding his voice.

The play premiered in 2012 at London’s Royal Court Theatre, before seasons across the USA and a successful Broadway production. Riverside’s National Theatre of Parramatta will bring this important story to the Australian stage with this all-new production, co-directed by Dino Dimitriadis (Cleansed, Lady Tabouli, Angels in America) and Zindzi Okenyo (Orange Thrower, seven methods of killing kylie jenner, and The Death of a Salesman).
