From the moment Herbie O'Hara steps into his inner-city grade school, everything that could possibly go wrong, does. 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." This is a play for every age.
