A Picture of Two Boys

Oct 21 - Nov 27, 2022

By Nick Malakhow

World Premiere

Unlikely friends Markey and Pete just want to escape their tiny, mostly white, not-so-secretly racist town in rural Pennsylvania. For sensitive Markey, that means dreams of college and big cities, while rebellious Pete wants to be the next Kurt Cobain. When Markey finds an escape route without Pete, their friendship is shaken to its core. A decade later, the two find themselves sifting through the crumbled foundations of their shared history and revisiting the event which bound them together for life.

“As an artist, I strive to create universal stories that are nuanced and populated by people with eclectic identities. While all of my characters don’t possess the specific traits that make me who I am--after all, how many plays could I write about half-Ukrainian, half-Dominican, socially anxious queer men?--my vantage point of observing the world from a few different liminal spaces informs who and what I choose to write about.”

 - Playwright Nick Malakhow
