If only adults could remember the lessons learned in childhood, the world might be a better place.

Iola High School drama students will offer a reminder with “All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten.” The play runs Thursday and Friday at 7 p.m. at the Bowlus Fine Arts Center.

It’s an adaptation of the essays compiled in Robert Fulghum’s book. IHS performed the play in 2008 when director Richard Spencer considered it a perfect fit for a vast array of talent among the actors.
