   GRAHAM — “Bocón” and “The Yellow Boat,” two one-act shows about societal issues, are part of Graham High School’s Theatre for Social Change.
Lisa Loomer’s “Bocón” follows a young boy named Miguel, as he tries to get away from the soldiers in his village; they’ve scared his voice away from him. He is encouraged to cross the border to the “City of Angels.”
“The Yellow Boat” is based on the life of Benjamin Saar, and it’s written by David Saar, his father; this story takes place in the 1980s. Benjamin is born a hemophiliac and following a blood transfusion, is diagnosed with AIDS.
Showtimes are 7 p.m. May 1-3, 2013, at Graham High School, 903 Trollinger Road. Tickets are $3 for students and $5 for adults. For more information, email Michael_Shannon@abss.k12.nc.us.

 Katie Farrell is a sophomore at Graham High School and a Teens & Twenties writer.
