“Boy Small” was inspired by the tragic events surrounding the disappearance and death of Christian Choate, a boy whose body was discovered in a shallow grave in May 2011. On January 11, 2013, his father Riley Choate was convicted for neglect and abuse. At his sentencing, Riley said, “All my actions will haunt me forever. I loved my son.” The paradox of family love and intolerance, within the dysfunctional environment of American culture, is explored in Cozzola’s fictional play.
