Based on a true story, My Funny Valentine peers into hearts and minds broken open as a town tries to heal. In 2008, 15-year-old Lawrence King asked a boy in his class to be his valentine. The next day that boy shot him and King died. Through one actor, My Funny Valentine enters the minds of seven people on the fringes of this murder. Yes, it’s a very difficult topic. We hope that by sharing the experience in a theatre setting, you’ll feel connected to others who are also searching through the confusion and chaos, and you’ll uncover your unique viewpoint.
