An insightful and revealing play, inspired by real events, which explores society’s uncomfortable embrace of the outsider.
It’s Gabe’s senior year and he’s going to make the most of it. He’s the chair of the LGBTQ Students Group, and he has one eye on a future in politics and one eye on Drew, the editor of the university newspaper.
But as Gabe and his friends throw themselves into campus life, unexpected events reveal a darker, lonelier world inhabited by a freshman called Teddy Ferrara.
Teddy Ferrara had its UK premiere at the Donmar Warehouse, London, in 2015, in a production directed by Dominic Cooke.
