About the project

The teenager Evan Hansen suffers from anxiety disorders and is known in his school as a weird outsider. One of the many self-addressed letters that Evan is supposed to write as part of his therapy coincidentally falls into the hands of his fellow student Connor Murphy, who commits suicide a short time later. When Connor’s parents find the letter with their son, Evan pretends that he was Connor’s best friend. In doing so, however, he ensnares himself more and more within a web of lies. This is a moving coming of age story with a stirring message.
