Grossmont College Theatre Arts presents 

Golden Boy

by Clifford Odets

Directed by Brian Rickel

Performances: May 14,15,16,21,22,23 at 7:30 p.m. and 16, 23 at 2 p.m.


Golden Boy tells the story of a young man named Joe, whose cockeyed notions of the world cause society to laugh at him.  A musician at heart, he longs for success in another way.  Discovering his talent as a prizefighter, Joe excels at a career that threatens his love for music, and ultimately his life. But when a terrible tragedy unfolds during his final fight, Joe’s spirit is crushed and the money and fame he has acquired soon mean nothing to him.  Not even those who gave him courage to face defeat can lift this young man out of his despair. Will love be enough to save him? Even that is uncertain.


Considered to be Clifford Odets’ preeminent theatrical endeavor, Golden Boy proves itself at turns shocking, funny, tragic, and breathtaking, truly earning its praise as a classic of American theatre.
