Obie, From Off-Broadway
Adrienne Kennedy relates her star-studded experience of moving to London and working on THE The Lennon Play: In His Own Write. Her absolute astonishment at being thrust in among the rich and famous of the theater and film world is really refreshing and charming. This is a great story, told in an interview-style conversation between a mother and son.
"Brief, odd, and entrancing...Refreshing...We are eavesdropping as a curious son prods his interesting mother to recollect a colorful — in fact glamorous — chapter in her past. " - The New York Times
"Touches on Adriennes’s common theme of individuality under attack...Alows us effortless access into Adrienne’s memory, which has been painted with a loving faithfulness that makes London into newly explored territory... The writing is impressively detailed and echoes with the same poetry of the prosaic that defines Adrienne’s best works" - Talkin' Broadway
