Atta Boy Perfect Disgrace Theater

Funding

Developed at The MacDowell Colony, Company of Angels Theatre (Los Angeles), and the Wild Project NYC.

Atta Boy played from March 29 - April 1, 2011 in the Dorothy B. Williams Theatre. 

About the show

Atta Boy follows Homer, a middle-aged Pakistani-American engineer, and Matthew, a surly teenaged outcast, as they meet for secret rendezvous at a local holiday inn. This is no ordinary affair. The play is a collage performance, and incorporates original writing with re-appropriated transcripts from contemporary journalism, youtube videos, conservative christian weblogs, torture theory and practice, and popular cultural representations of the Columbine Massacre and the attacks at the World Trade Center in New York City in 2001. Atta Boy conflates the xenophobia/homophobia in the national responses to these traumatic historical moments, and maps a creepy topography of vulnerable desire.
