Book-It Repertory Theatre presents staged readings from "Stories for Boys," adapted and directed by Laura Ferri. Author Gregory Martin joins Ferri and cast for a post-performance discussion. -- Martin's quirky, heart-wrenching memoir looks at family secrets, truth and reconciliation, acceptance and forgiveness. As Martin struggles to come to terms with revelations of his father's homosexuality following an attempted suicide, he relates humorous stories about parenting two young sons mixed with memories of his own happy childhood with the father he thought he knew.
