I Wish You A Boat

I Wish You A Boat 

I Wish You A Boat brings the story of a 19th century shipwreck to a space as intimate as your living room and boldly asks the audience to personally witness the sinking of a ship where only the privileged survive. Act One, viewed from the perspective of first-class survivors, was built from 19th century sources while Act Two, developed entirely through improvisation, is told from the steerage point of view. While the entire play is visually striking and set to an enchanting musical score, it is the startling about-face in the second act that surprises, saddens and delights audiences most. Through this delicate telling of a monstrous story , we are reminded of our common immigrant ancestry and the sacrifices that were required for the journey. As one audience member has remarked, "We are all steerage!"
