Legs Crossed Hands on Your Lap – Toronto Fringe 2015 Press Release

“A play dedicated to caring teachers everywhere”


Excerpt from press release:

Ms. X. is an elementary school teacher, dedicated to her students, zipping zippers, tying shoelaces and scurrying through a maze of school politics.

Scandal. Betrayal. A missing carrot graph. LEGS CROSSED HANDS ON YOUR LAP is a humourous look inside the teaching profession.
