Kennedy's Children
Kennedy's Children
by Robert Patrick

directed by Jamal Howard

Kennedy's Children explores the inner thoughts and turmoil of five bar patrons on a stormy Valentine's Day in New York, 1973. Hailing from an array of American cultures, the characters spew out their troubled pasts and presents with a series of monologues that slowly reveal some less than fortunate futures.  The play is populated by Wanda, the Kennedy purist, Carla, the next Marilyn Monroe, Sparger, the off off off off Broadway actor, Rona, the hippie who has run out of things to protest, and Mark, the addled Vietnam vet. Their stories combine to tell that of a generation lost in Camelot circling in an unreachable dream of days gone by.

The cast for Kennedy's Children features Emily Bates (Rona), Colin Fewell (Mark), Caitlin Jackson (Carla), Charlesanne Rabensburg (Wanda), and Anthony Whitaker (Sparger).

Kennedy's Children performs on the weekend of the 50th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on Friday, November 22 at 8:00 pm and Sunday, November 24 at 8:00 pm.

The reading will run approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes including one intermission.
