Will Grayson is surviving high school by following two cardinal rules: 1) Shut Up 2) Try Not To Care. His best friend is Tiny: “the world’s largest person who is really, really gay,” whose physical bulk and outgoing personality overshadow Will’s whole existence. When a fake-ID mess-up leads to Will hanging out alone on a cold Chicago night, he meets… Will Grayson. Other Will Grayson is a clinically depressed gay kid from Iowa, who has ended up alone in the city, and who is having one of the worst nights in a life that has included some pretty rotten nights. Tiny, who falls in and out of love constantly, immediately falls for this new Will… but this time it might mean something more for everyone involved.
Will Grayson, Will Grayson is about the two Wills, their relationships with Tiny, with their families, with their friends and girlfriends, and about how all those things can change, slowly or in an instant. It’s a sweet story and funny, but also an honest look at cruelty, selfishness, mental illness and also deep love.
