The Law of Gravity

By Olivier Sylvestre

Translated by Bobby Theodore

ABOUT

Told through the unlikely friendship between Fred and Dom, the play asks what it means to be a boy in a hetero-normative society.

 

Over the course of a school year in a place called Almost-the-City, the two friends question their genders and sexual identities. They confront themselves and their peers at school all the while looking across the river to a place called The City. At the end of the school year, will they decide to cross the river together and begin new lives as their true selves?

The Law of Gravity explores the themes of gender, friendship, and sexual identity, with intelligence and sensitivity. It is about tolerance and acceptance of others and of yourself.

The Law of Gravity was workshopped with the support of Playwrights' Workshop Montreal.

The Study Guide was created in collaboration with ACCM Education for Prevention Services and their program SextEd. Learn more at accmontreal.org and sexted.org.
