From the cornfields of Indiana to the streets of South Central Los Angeles, They Call Me Mister Fry is the true-life story teaching 5th grade in South Los Angeles as a first-year teacher. It’s a funny, poignant solo show that tells the struggles of a mid-western white boy from Indiana dealing with a challenging, multi-ethic body of students and his journey through the bowels of big city bureaucracy. It focuses on his relationship with two challenging students and how they affected each other’s lives. Most importantly, it follows the evolution of “Mr. Fry” into an effective teacher — who came to teach, but ended up learning.
