THE BOX TURTLE INCIDENT
Written and Performed by Ryan Dietz
Directed by Leslie Collins
Meet Ryan, a sixth grader whose birthday wishes come true when his parents get him what he's been praying for: a box turtle. Things at home have definitely started looking up...but what about school? Would he trade in his only friend, Jason, for an ounce of popularity? Will he actually get to perform on a real stage, outside of his living room productions? Ryan's dreams start to turn into reality, but how long could it last? Follow Ryan as his imagination and desire to perform help him discover what it means to grow up your own way.
