From Off-Broadway

The Play About My Dad is a look at Larry Killebrew through the eyes of his playwright daughter, Boo. His words, his family, his job as an emergency room surgeon, his community of Gulfport, Mississippi – and Hurricane Katrina, which almost turned Gulfport into a coral reef. As Larry tries acting and Boo adds new scenes, they discover how hard it is to tell the story the true way.
