Reflections of a Rock Lobster
Presented by Boston Children's Theatre
March 3 - March 11, 2011
The true story of a 17 year-old gay student from Cumberland, Rhode Island who sued his high school in 1980 for the right to escort his boyfriend to his high school prom, is the basis for this groundbreaking World Premiere of the play REFLECTIONS OF A ROCK LOBSTER. Adapted by Burgess Clark from the autobiographical book by Aaron Fricke, the play makes a powerful statement about bullying, intolerance and hope. “BCT is extremely proud to be the first children’s theatre to address these often sensitive subjects on our mainstage. By dealing with the issues of bullying and prejudice, BCT hopes to enlighten our audiences with positive messages about tolerance and acceptance. There are lessons in this story that we can all learn from, regardless of our age, gender, or life choices.”
REFLECTIONS OF A ROCK LOBSTER runs March 3 – March 11.
