Stage play of the award-winning debut novel by Frank Anthony Polito, as produced by Slipstream Theatre Initiative in Hazel Park, MI - Bailey Boudreau, Artistic Director

Jack Paterno is a straight-A student living in the Detroit suburb of Hazel Park. The only thing he has in common with his best friend since seventh grade, Brad Dayton, is that both are in band... Or maybe that's not the only thing?

As Jack and Brad make their way through junior high and high school, their friendship grows deeper and more complicated. From stealing furtive glances at Playgirl to discussing which guys they would find cute (if they were girls), Jack is trying to figure out who and what he is. More than anything, he wants to be popular and "normal."

But as Brad points out, this is real life -- not a
John Hughes movie. Sooner or later, Jack will have to choose. And when he does, the decision he makes could cost him.
