Checked out Zee Zee Theatre‘s Nelly Boy at the PAL tonight in Coal Harbour. Local Playwright Dave Deveau’s new play discussing the marginalization of non-specific gender identity, it’s an intimate and language-driven work that spotlights the work of an actor about whom Colin Thomas writes in the opening line of his review:

Nelly Boy runs until this Sunday. Click here for full details on this production.
