Play the Devil

Play the Devil

18 year old Gregory is caught between repressing his true creative nature and desires and surrendering to society’s dictates of what it means to be a man.  An encounter with a successful businessman derails the plans set by his family and community. Play The Devil shatters conventions of sexuality, masculinity, morality and individuality through its unapologetic multi-layered explorations of power dynamics, religion and aspirations.
