Williamsburg residents will have one more chance to see Lafayette High School’s award-winning production of The Yellow Boat during a free performance at the Williamsburg Regional Library on Friday.

The one-act play will begin at 7 p.m. Feb. 12 in the library’s auditorium.

The production won first place at the Virginia High School League state theater festival in December. It was the first time Lafayette won first place in the 4A East division, having previously competed as a 3A East school.

The Yellow Boat is a 1997 one-act abstract play by David Saar about the life of his son Benjamin, who was diagnosed with congenital hemophilia and died at 8 years old from AIDS-related complications.

Lafayette was named the Ironclad Conference 18 champion in early November and competed against seven schools in the 4A East classification to win the regional title Nov. 21.

The Williamsburg Regional Library is located at 515 Scotland St.
