An unpopular teenager, Nick spends his days online, where he quickly discovers an addictive pleasure in creating fake personalities in a teen chat room. It’s here he meets Adam, a young man in search of love. In response Nick creates a fictional dream girl for Adam. Obsession builds and catastrophe looms as fantasy and reality collide.
A story for the Internet age, Dark Play or Stories for Boys is a coming-of-age tale of desire and the consequences of deception.
From director Jeremy Lee Cudd, “This is a story about a defining, transformational experience – one of those times in your life when you do several years of growing up in just moments. Nick discovers his powers to create and to destroy. He becomes intimately acquainted with the worst parts of himself and experiences hell as a place of his making – a place where you are separated from love by a lie. But telling the truth conjures the scariest question of all: Am I worthy of being loved…as I truly am?”
