Nelly Boy

Performers Allan Zinyk & Amitai Marmorstein tell us why we should see

Nelly Boy

Written by: Dave Deveau

Directed by: Cameron Mackenzie

Starring: Amitai Marmorstein and Allan Zinyk

Presented by: Zee Zee Theatre (link)

Though biologically a boy, Nelly is hardly male, nor female. A tumultuous teen in a family who can’t understand gender difference, Nelly takes the audience through a haunting tale of suburban life. An interrogator, in turn, attempts to put the pieces together in order to discover how Nelly was found running naked along a highway. This is a story about a person struggling to find space to exist between the black and white of the world.

Following the hugely successful inaugural production of Bryden MacDonald’s Whale Riding Weather, Zee Zee Theatre continues to strive to create theatre that explores the small stories and intimate moments in people’s lives through which limitless humanity and depth of character can be revealed.
