Simeon: fourteen, awkward, a brainiac. Morgan: eight, also awkward, also a brainiac. Venice: five, adorable. Orphaned and alone in the world, they make a vow to never be separated. Enter Balthasar: 26, handsome, gay and the kids' older, immature half-brother they never knew they had. He's also their only hope for staying together.
But is Balthasar ready to give up his irresponsible party boy ways to become their guardian? Honest and heartrending, OH BOY!, based on the book by Marie Aude-Murail, is a one-man tour de force exploring what it means to be a family, and the importance of pulling together when faced with some of life's most devastating moments.
Adapted from a novel by Marie-Aude Murail
