The Boy Detective Fails, based on Joe Meno’s acclaimed novel, tells the story of Billy Argo, “boy detective.” In a world akin to Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys, young Billy becomes famous for solving mysteries, until he faces a mystery he can’t comprehend – the shocking death of his young sister, Caroline. Ten years later, a 30-year-old Billy returns to his quiet New Jersey town determined to solve the mystery of Caroline’s death and right old wrongs. Expecting the black and white world of his childhood, he instead discovers a world full of grey and unimaginable strangeness, beauty, and even love. The George Mason School of Theater is thrilled to premiere this new and updated version by book writer Joe Meno and composer Adam Gwon.
