In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson
Based on the book by Bette Bao Lord and Adapted for the stage by Mark Branner
Adapted from an award-winning novel, this play is the touching story of a young girl and her family moving from China to the United States in 1947. Told through humor, language and a rich multi-media staging, the play celebrates the bravery and sacrifice of those who bring new perspectives to our country.
Across the Country
This HTY production will tour across the United States to over 20 different communities from Kansas to Conneticut, Florida to California. We are deeply honored that Mrs. Lord has entrusted us to share this story and that so many communities are interested in this story.
Mahalo to everyone who will welcome HTY to their community and a big bon voyage to team on the road!
HTY has created a series of educational materials, videos and more for your use before and after the performance.
