NewFest 2021: ALL BOYS AREN’T BLUE
October 16, 2021 @ 3:00 PM - 6:00 PM EDT
In a poetic visual reading of George Matthew Johnson’s intimate memoir, Dyllon Burnside (FX’s POSE), Bernard David Jones, and Thomas Hobson play Johnson at pivotal stages of their life to recount their experiences growing up Black, queer, and non-binary.Most touchingly, ALL BOYS AREN’T BLUE captures the warm relationship they had with their grandmother, warmly voiced by legendary actor Jenifer Lewis. Prose is king, and Johnson’s couldn’t be more captivating — made only stronger by the actors’ imaginative interpretations of the material.
WRITER: George M. Johnson
