Brandon Hardy is everything you imagine the perfect student to be: smart, athletic and charming. As the golden boy of St. Joe’s Preparatory School, Hardy has his Ivy League future all figured out … until a school scandal rocks his prep-school world.
“Good Boys and True,” the newest production from Winthrop University’s Department of Theatre and Dance, examines how difficult it can be to separate fact from fiction, especially about those we know and love best.
The student-led production opens March 23 in Johnson Studio Theatre under the helm of student-director Jasmine Gunter, a theater major from Columbia.
Fort Mill theater major Andrew White steps into the main role of Brandon, a young man completely adored by his mother, Elizabeth (Tessa Zimmerman, theater, Columbia). One day, football coach Shea calls Elizabeth into his office and shows her a shocking video depicting a man who may or may not be Brandon engaging in illicit acts with an unidentified woman. He needs her to verify Brandon’s identity before proceeding, causing Elizabeth to wonder what she really knows about her son.
“Good Boys and True” was written by Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa.
