From the outside, best pals Jacob and Bex may seem like an odd pairing: Jacob is queer and comes from a wealthy family, while Bex is straight and working class – yet they’ve navigated the minefield of high school together, venting about annoying boys and being passionate advocates for LGBTQ+ causes around their school. But on the first day of Grade 12, Bex shares something with Jacob – and the world – that may change their friendship forever. Or maybe just for now.
FOR NOW is a touching and funny new play for youth that explores issues of gender, sexuality, and privilege among two best friends.
