This one man show written and performed by Nicholas Richardson centers around Mr. Fox, a sixth grade teacher fighting to make a difference on the lives and minds of his new students. Mr. Fox however is inches away from throwing in the towel on his life. He migrated to the US, lost the love of his life, and only in his early thirties, he doesn't appear to have much to offer. He is considerably shy of a stable income, and miles short from any of his childhood dreams. Yet, here he is - ready(-ish) to teach the 6th grade what he knows in the best way he can! What could possibly go wrong...
