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.

A Seat on the Aisle

"Retro Productions is an exceptionally talented theatre company dedicated to the presentation of 'good theatrical stories that have an historical perspective - with an emphasis on the 20th century'...This revival does not come across as dated at all. Indeed, although the internet and sexting may have supplanted videotaping in today’s world, the play’s message is as salient today as it ever was." Full Review

Theatre is Easy

"'Good Boys and True' in this day and age, is extremely relevant...There are many gut-wrenching, in-your-face moments in this drama. Amusing lines are written in as well, but they do not ease the tension...Though there is not much depth to the ideas written into Aguirre-Sacasa's script, White does well with bringing the important topics brought up in 'Good Boys and True' to life."
