The Boys Room

by Joel Drake Johnson

Directed by Brian Balcom

November 4th – 27th, 2022 

What happens when grownups run away from home?  In The Boys Room, two adult brothers race each other back to their boyhood bedroom — that sanctuary where they can dream and scheme and escape from the pressure of the outside world. But life has a way of catching up, and two of the women in their lives have dreams too … and they are knocking on the door, urging them to grow up; filled with questions and, sometimes, love.”

In The Boys Room, playwright Joel Drake Johnson exquisitely walks the line between laughter and tears in his exploration of the messy side of family, responsibility, disappointment, and forgiveness.

“one of the more devastating family portraits ­on any stage at the moment.”- Chicago Sun Times

“a blizzard of painful truth… engulfs the pedestrian, the familiar and the contrived, and hits you with a thud roughly comparable to landing on your back in the driven snow.” – Chicago Tribune

The Boys Room opens Friday, November 4th and runs through Sunday, November 27th at the Gremlin Theatre – 550 Vandalia Street, St. Paul, MN 55114.

Free parking is available in the huge lot on Wabash Avenue near the water tower or on the streets around the building.  There is also a lot across the street on the north side of Wabash Avenue.  Enter the Annex building via the double doors that say Gremlin Theatre next to Lake Monster brewery.
