The Details

There is a little hero in each of us. From the small things we do that put a smile on someone's face or make life a little easier. To lending even more than a hand when someone is in need. Or even just raising big-hearted kids, who may go on to be even bigger heroes. No matter where we come from, we can make a difference. That is the underlying theme of The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg a world premiere Kennedy Center Commission, perfect to take your budding hero to!

Adapted by Tom Isbell from the Newbery Honor book by Rodman Philbrick
Directed by Gregg Henry

Featuring Joe Brack, Veronica del Cerro, Michael Glenn, James J. Johnson, Ryan Mercer, Michael Russotto, and Michael V. Sazonov

During the Civil War, a small 12-year-old boy who never even owned a pair of shoes steps up to become a hero by saving his older brother at the Battle of Gettysburg. Then he helps lead the Union to victory! Sound too heroic to believe? It's true. At least mostly true. You see, Homer P. Figg doesn't always tell the whole truth about, well, anything. But from Maine to Pennsylvania, facing Union soldiers and Confederates, Underground Railroad conductors and circus ring leaders, Homer will tell any tale it takes to save his brother. Rodman Philbrick's Newbery Honor–winning novella becomes the humorously staged story of Homer's journey through thieves, spies, and scallywags as he makes his way through history.
