MR. PARENT

MR. PARENT by Melinda Lopez with Maurice Emmanuel Parent Conceived with and directed by Megan Sandberg-Zakian

A struggling actor turns to teaching for a steady paycheck, thinking “how hard could it be?” It doesn’t take long to realize that the answer is somewhere between “very” and “impossible.” But then—as he careens from the Boston Public Schools by day to serious thespian at night—Mr. Parent starts to wonder where he really belongs. MR. PARENT is a deeply felt and hilarious solo performance about crushingly inequitable systems, the brilliance of every kid, and how we might all find the space to be ourselves.
