The War Boys
By Naomi Wallace
In their spare time three vigilantes, childhood friends, enjoy patrolling the U.S./Mexican border. But these youths soon learn that even the most guarded borders are permeable. When the lines between fantasy and reality become dangerously blurred, these young men are forced to decide what it means to be an American, and who has the right to belong.
This play was written for men but in this production all three characters were played by women. The women performed as men, engaging each other and audiences in a conversation about gender, performance, violence, and race and the intersection of those ideas.
