How was your experience?

Clear I hated it I didn't like it It was OK I liked it I loved it!
Jack Fry's show is the best presentation of a modern-day teacher's life and dilemmas I've ever seen. With poignant insights and deft humor, Fry navigates the sandbars, storms and harbors of a teacher's life and work - from "getting hired" to classroom discipline and the effects on his personal life. On the way, as a 5th grade teacher he encounters two memorable students, the Latino "Anthony" and the amazing African-American "Jasmine," and because of his affection for them, he becomes involved in their lives, obviously complicating his teaching career. This play is a "must see" for teachers, and also an incisive document into the life of a man who has chosen this noble vocation as his profession. I left the theatre amused and inspired. It was a "bravo" performance by a man who really knows his subject.
