About

Everyone wants to leave behind proof that they existed.

If all you had was one small box, what would you put in that box as proof that you were here? What would you put in as proof that your life had meaning and purpose?

139 years ago, Isabelle gave birth to a son, Johnny.

129 years ago, Johnny died of typhoid fever. Isabelle was given an order: all of his possessions were to be burned. Instead, in secret, his momma packed a box to prove that Johnny lived. And then, she plastered it into the wall.

30 years ago (100 years later) Tom found the box.

The Lost Boy, a true story of legacy and a mother's love.

No one packs their box alone. What would the people who love you put in your one small box? What family stories are plastered into the walls of your house?

The Lost Boy will urge you to not miss telling the stories. It will urge you to stop and listen, really listen to the stories. 

When you leave the theatre, it's not Isabelle and Johnny's family story that you will think about...it is your own.

Risks and challenges

We've already faced and overcome the greatest risks: 1) the loss of Tom. 2) Keeping true to my commitment to help Tom pass this story forward.

Producing a play is always a festival of opportunities and obstacles. After we are successfully funded, we'll walk into every one of them. It is our hope to do the play at The DeMarcus Brown Theatre on the campus of the University of the Pacific. DeMarcus was Tom's mentor (and father-in-law) so the theatre is special for many reasons. Tom was a graduate of UOP so the play has a nice circle coming back around. We working on that even as we make this appeal. Back up plans are also in the works.
