WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Johnny is a typical 5th grader, way into video games and not especially motivated at school. Imagine his surprise one night when there's a loud knock at the door and his ancestor John Henry bursts into his bedroom, wielding a 12 lb hammer and insisting that he will visit Johnny's class the next day for "Show & Tell." At first unimpressed by John Henry's tragic tale about his race with the steam engine, the kids in Johnny's class come to appreciate the importance of his ultimate sacrifice. The award-winning playwright of Lost & Foundling (seen here in 2008) has created another witty and insightful contemporary comedy. Enjoyed by ages 7+
