A WORLD PREMIERE BY DARRELL H. Y. LUM
MAY 23 – JUNE 23, 2019
Bobo is a little slow. His abusive father wants to send him away. Selling newspapers on the street, Bobo scrounges for a little money. Despite injuries, harassment, and discrimination, Bobo never complains—after all, he may not have much—but Bobo does have one thing: a true friend. Da Beer Can Hat is based on Darrell Lum’s original short story of a mentally handicapped individual and his one, best friend.
