Girls & Boys
by Dennis Kelly
An unexpected meeting at an airport leads to an intense, passionate, head-over-heels relationship. Before long they begin to settle down, buy a house, juggle careers, have kids – theirs is an ordinary family.
But then their world starts to unravel and things take a disturbing turn.
Note: Girls & Boys is intended for a mature audience and contains graphic descriptions of violence.
