dark play or stories for boys

On the World Wide Web, you could be anything. Nick, an exceptionally bright young teenager, understands this concept all too well, using the internet as his personal playground for mock personal ads, raving chat room sessions, and fake profiles. Then Nick stumbles upon Adam, a hopelessly lovesick kid in search of his dream girl online. Unable to resist, Nick targets Adam as his next electronic victim, until his amusement becomes an obsession. The virtual mind games explode into real world consequences, and no one is ever quite the same again.
Contains mature themes, sexual situations, and graphic language.

What if Albert Einstein and Pablo Picasso had met each other just before making their monumental discoveries in art and science? The year is 1904; Einstein is about to publish “The Special Theory of Relativity,” and Picasso is on the verge of realizing cubism.

Written by comedian Steve Martin, this hilarious play argues the differences between science and art, love and lust, genius and insanity. Prepare for laughs and a wonderful evening of theatre as two of the most influential people of the 20th century go head-to-head.

Sonnet 128
William Shakespeare

How oft, when thou, my music, music play'st
Upon that blessed wood whose motion sounds
With thy sweet fingers when thou gently sway'st
The wiry concord that mine ear confounds,
Do I envy those jacks that nimble leap
To kiss the tender inward of thy hand,
Whilst my poor lips, which should that harvest reap,
At the wood's boldness by thee blushing stand!
To be so tickled, they would change their state
And situation with those dancing chips,
O'er whom thy fingers walk with gentle gait,
Making dead wood more blest than living lips.
     Since saucy jacks so happy are in this,
     Give them thy fingers, me, thy lips, to kiss.
