New York City
Martin moves to a new school and feels lost and alone in a sea of strange faces… that is until he befriends the quiet and quirky Simon McGurk. The two spend every day together until Martin’s gift for soccer and a disastrous class field trip complicate their once simple friendship. From the school’s most popular girl to the class bully, every character is singlehandedly brought to energetic life by the wildly imaginative and captivating Andy Manley (White, Drama Desk nominee for Unique Theatrical Experience, New Vic 2011). A heartwarming and humorous coming of age story, The Ballad of Pondlife McGurk is the perfect tale to hold close to your soul and share with your family.
