Act 2 Synopsis
We pick the story up as Oskar logs into Mrs. Crunch’s class. He is a bit late and Mrs. Crunch is a bit bothered . . . but she manages to use a foolproof coping strategy to get herself back on task. We discover that Frank, Beth, and Oskar are the only students left to present for the Show and Tell Competition.
Drumroll! Beth goes next. But she’s feeling sad because it’s hard to do Show and Tell online. Yet, she manages to use a coping strategy to bring her mood up. She gives a good presentation.
Drumroll! Frank is next. At first he struggles too, but uses another coping strategy to lift himself up and does a great job with his presentation.
It’s finally Oskar’s turn. As he predicted the class thinks it’s a puppet. Oskar is filled with worry and anxiety because he really wants to win. He just doesn’t know how to handle his disappointment.
And then when Mrs. Crunch is about to announce the winner Oskar takes drastic, though somewhat magical, measures to postpone announcing the winner.
