Boys' Life traces the misadventures of three former college buddies seeking to make their way in New York City in the 1980s. Told in a series of fast- paced, sharply etched scenes, the play dissects and anatomizes the male narcissism and protracted adolescence which afflicts its male characters. Nominated for a Pulitzer Prize, the New Yorker called it "the most balanced and intelligent comment on the battle of the sexes I've seen in a long time."
