“The Yellow Boat,” by David Saar, is based on the true story of the playwright’s son, Benjamin, who contracted the AIDS virus through a tainted blood transfusion while receiving treatment for hemophelia.
Taking place in the 1980s, in a time when the AIDS pandemic was just beginning, audiences will see this family struggle with the unknown and the need to connect and battle illness as a family. As Benjamin uses his art to continue to celebrate his zest for life even in the face of an unknown illness, audiences peek into the mind of a creative and imaginative child who faces scary circumstances with joy.
