There Are Boys In These Men
Started June 1, 2022
Abstract or project description
The topic of the project is generally about a young man, Dorian, from high society who strongly dislikes being within that society. He travels with his overbearing mother to New York to begin a new life after escaping a scandal. Once in New York, he finds himself at a jazz club and meets various characters who help him see that he can live a different life than what he's used to, and that he can be whoever he wants to be. Ultimately, he has to decide if he will submit to high society life as his mother intends, or if he will be his own man and live for himself, whatever that may entail. The story explores themes of the class system, mental health, coming-of-age, and so on. The script will be a minimum of 85 pages and will contain 3 acts.
