An Evening with Playwright Robert Schenkkan

Presentation: Thursday @ 7:30 p.m.

Robert Schenkkan, the author of The Kentucky Cycle, will discuss the importance of history as a dramatic tool for illuminating the issues of our own time. He will also describe how The Kentucky Cycle evolved from a one-act play in 1984 to the epic six-hour masterpiece that premiered at Seattle’s Intiman Theatre in 1991. In addition, Schenkkan will talk about his current two-play project about President Lyndon B. Johnson and passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964: All the Way, which is opening on Broadway in February, and The Great Society, premiering at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival this summer.

BPA's outreach programs for The Kentucky Cycle are supported in part by a grant from Humanities Washington, a state-wide non-profit organization supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the state of Washington, and contributions from individuals and foundations.
