Wolfboy is a play by Brad Fraser (1959-)[1].

The original text

The play explores the relationship between two youths who are patients in a psychiatric ward — one of whom claims to possess the supernatural powers of the wolf. The boys, on the verge of manhood, try to keep life magical, while coming to grips with the harsh reality of an ugly adult world.

First performed in Edmonton, Canada, in 1981, then done at 25th Street Theatre, Saskatoon, in 1982, before a opening in Toronto in 1984 (a production by Theatre Passe Muraille, featuring one of the first significant acting roles for Keanu Reeves).
