What is Dear Evan Hansen about>
Dear Evan Hansen is a cautionary tale about how a lie can spread across a community long before the truth even has a look in. The eponymous Evan of the story is an anxiety-ridden high school misfit who is desperate for any form of recognition from his peers. So much so, that when his classmate Connor commits suicide after suffering depression, a mysterious suicide note appears in the weeks after, seemingly addressed to Evan.
Now infamous by association with the dead teen, Evan finally gains the spotlight that he craves. However, with a traumatized local community, not to mention his family, starts begging Evan for more clues about Connor's state of mind, Evan's world starts to unravel with frightening speed. With Connor's parents and sister Zoe (who just happens to be Evan's crush) finding solace in the note, it isn't long before the powers of social media start to question its validity, and Evan's own motives.
