Finally in print, the commissioned stage adaptation of Jim Provenzano's acclaimed debut novel, PINS. Joey Nicci struggles with the pressures of being a gay high school wrestler in suburban New Jersey.

"A strong, well-staged world premiere production. Provenzano shows great skill with naturalistic dialogue and a healthy dose of wry humor." - SF Examiner

"Provenzano shows a deep fondness for his characters and a sure understanding of the wrestling milieu. He's particularly adept at handling the crosscurrents of fear and lust produced by the conflict between the sport's potential homoeroticism and the team members' homophobia. ... nicely captures the tender ache of adolescence." - Zac Thompson, Chicago Reader
