Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures follows young Simon on a quest to battle a fearsome dragon,with the aid of their friend Abby. Along the way, Simon’s older brother resists the pair’s magical world and shares his discomfort with Simon dressing up to transform into their ‘true self.’ 

This playful and moving story explores the search for a place to be ourselves safely, fully express who we are without judgement, and to find out what we are made of with the support and celebration of our friends and family. Boys, Girls, and Other Mythological Creatures explores gender identity, transformation, and magic with the same humour, charm, and compassion that playwright Mark Crawford brings to his successful works for adults: The Birds and The Bees, Bed and Breakfast, and Stag and Doe. Study guide available
