A struggling actor turns to teaching for a steady paycheck, thinking "how hard could it be?" But as he careens from the Boston Public Schools by day to serious thespian at night, Mr. Parent starts to wonder where he really belongs. Based on the stories and real-life adventures of Lyric Stage favorite, Maurice Emmanuel Parent, Mr. Parent is a deeply felt and hilarious solo performance about crushingly inequitable systems, the brilliance of every kid, and how we might all find the space to be ourselves.
