Can a little squirrel change the human heart? After a near-death experience with a vacuum cleaner, a squirrel is rescued by Flora Belle Buckman, a 10-year-old self-proclaimed cynic. She names him Ulysses and soon discovers he has been reborn as a superhero, with powers of strength, flight, and the ability to type poetry on Flora’s mother’s typewriter! Together, they embark on an unpredictable adventure, which has the power to awaken the possibility of hope--even for someone as cynical as Flora.

Based on the 2014 Newbery Medal winner by best-selling author Kate DiCamillo, this laugh-out-loud play is bursting with heart and filled with eccentric and endearing characters sure to delight the entire family.
