SCHWARZ THEATRE

DIRECTED BY AUDRA HUGHES

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 a child’s life, and the strength and courage of all children. Recommended for children of age 8 and older, parents, families and adults.
