ALWAYS A BOY, inspired by Jo Ivester's best-selling, award-winning memoir Never a Girl, Always a Boy, tells the story of Ash, a 22-year-old college student struggling to figure out his gender identity. Conversations between Ash, the 12-year-old child he was, and the 32-year-old man he will become allow the audience to observe what is typically a very private, internal angst. This is Ash's and his family's coming-out story, told with humor and warmth. It is honest and hard-hitting, sharing the tough moments as well as the joyful ones. It is a story of acceptance in a family that always knew how to love but needed to learn how to accept.
