David Harrell shares his personal life experiences with children and teaches them how to be heroes.
Born without his right hand, David has spent a majority of his life trying to complete checkpoints on his journey to be “normal.” On this journey to get there, David dealt with bullying, exclusion, and loneliness. In turn he used his creativity to eventually become the unlikely hero at recess. The Boy Who Would be Captain Hook is a smart and important story for children and parents alike about acceptance and inclusion and how to not let circumstances peel away who we really are as human beings.
The Boy Who Would Be Captain Hook will be at the Cherry Lane Theatre on Saturday, October 19 at 11 am and on Saturday, November 2, at 11am.
