What would be every fifth grader's nightmare is actually this unfortunate boy's reality

He's late for class, then his teacher mistakes him for the boy who was murdered at a gas station, the lead in his pencil breaks, and on and on

Will anything ever go right?

Will he survive this day?

Will he ever find a friend?

A bright new nickel offers the boy hope in a "secret admirer"

A play for every age

Can be performed at high school level
