United Solo Theatre Festival 2018
When Foster Lawrence was eighteen years old he fell from a fifth floor window in Manhattan. And does not know how. This incident served as his coming out as gay/queer. Ten years later, he attempts to find out what happened that night by navigating the New York City terrain and the NYPD. Foster begins to understand what privilege looks likes in America; from 2006, to 2016, to this moment in 2020.
What Happens To Boys In Chelsea was first performed at The Karcher,
a hair salon in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
The work was an Official Selection of the United Solo Theatre Festival 2018
where it had its off-Broadway debut at Theatre Row.
