Boy in a Boat can be seen as a modern version of ‘Who’s afraid of Virginia Woolf. In close collaboration with Dood Paard, Dutch playwright Rob de Graaf wrote a ‘well-made play’ about a well-to-do couple and their friend who has brought an exotic young boyfriend back from a distant land. A story of people in their fifties, emotionally crippled, who are desperately trying to make something of their lives. A story in which the immigrant evokes in turn compassion and disgust and turns up the pressure.
