AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'From the creative team behind The Yellow Wave comes a darkly comic take on a well-known tale. Just a Boy Standing in Front of a Girl follows J and M as they fall in love and hit the road in search of fame and fortune. A contemporary and subversive re-imagining of events surrounding a classic text, Just a Boy is a parable of the patriarchy that shows what happens when you're young, talented, smart, strong and female!'
