When an actor turns to teaching for a steady paycheck, he learns that it’s less of a job and more of a constant, visceral reminder of one’s own success and/or failure. Mr. Parent is a hilarious, joyful, and heartbreakingly honest peek into the kids, adults, and systems of the Boston Public Schools. Based on the real-life adventures of favorite Boston actor Maurice Parent, Mr. Parent asks, “What does it mean to show up for our kids — and ourselves?”
