About the show

Retro Productions presents a story about a sex tape scandal circulating among the jocks at an elite boys’ school in 1988. More…

Prep-school senior Brandon Hardy is brilliant, athletic, popular and charming—the kind of student that makes St. Joe's School for Boys proud to call its own. However, his privileged life threatens to collapse when a disturbing videotape is found on campus. As the resulting scandal takes unexpected turns, Brandon's mother Elizabeth must sort fact from fiction from family and confront unsettling truths about her son, herself, and their life.

Theater In The Now

"The text by rising scribe Aguirre-Sacasa is one of his finest. But this production is sadly missing that spark...And that can be blamed on the scenic design…There's no wiggle room for the actors, forcing the staging to be quite stationary…The company that comprised 'Good Boys and True' were quite mixed…It’s likely you picked a conclusion mere moments into the play. This is an important story but Retro Productions didn’t seem to do justice for it." Full Review
