THE BOY IN THE MOON

Tickets have *SOLD OUT* to The Boy in the Moon fundraiser.
Thank you for your support! We look forward to seeing you on May 16.


When Walker Brown was born with “an impossibly rare genetic mutation”, he sparked a life-changing journey for his parents and sister.  In The Boy in the Moon: A Father’s Search for his Disabled Son, his beautiful, acclaimed memoir, Globe and Mail journalist Ian Brown chronicles his search to answer the question: what is the value of a life like my son’s?

Does Ian’s struggle with the limitations of Walker’s life reveal the limitations of our own?  This difficult question is explored in the stage adaptation of The Boy in the Moon, written by DJC member Emil Sher.

This spring, Toronto’s Crow’s Theatre will mount the play and the May 16 performance is your opportunity to both see this poignant, moving piece and to help raise funds for the DJC.  We have bought a block of seats, and a portion of each ticket sale will help support a variety of DJC programs and initiatives.

Following the performance, please join us for a moderated discussion and reception with Walker’s parents, Ian Brown and Johanna Schneller, and playwright Emil Sher.  This is exclusive to DJC ticket holders.

One night out can make a difference as we plan for the year ahead.
