"It's what we do with the time we have that matters." - Metro Theater Company's Guide to The Yellow Boat by David Saar.
The Yellow Boat is based on the true story of David and Sonja Saar's son, Benjamin, who was born with congenital hemophilia and died in 1987 at the age of 8 of AIDS-related complications. A uniquely gifted visual artist, Benjamin's buoyant imagination transformed his physical and emotional pain into a blaze of colors and shapes in his fanciful drawings and paintings. The story of The Yellow Boat is a glorious affirmation of one child's life and of the strength and courage of all children.
Though it touches on and sensitively explores issues of death and dying and AIDS, the play is about living. It is about the power of imagination and art to transform our lives and make them full of color, energy, humor, and hope.
Produced by special arrangement with THE DRAMATIC PUBLISHING COMPANY of Woodstock, Illinois
