Free readers' theatre in Edmonds Sunday showcases new work by Christopher Bailey

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

“The Passion of the Bobby” by Christopher Bailey covers the final feverish months of Bobby Kennedy’s campaign for president in 1968, from the April 4 murder of Martin Luther King, Jr., to his own shooting on June 5, just moments after winning the California primary.

Through personal episodes, the play explores the issues he was confronting in his quest for the White House — from Vietnam to riots to racial discrimination — and, despite the tragic ending, offers hope that the impossible can still be accomplished, like the coalition he was building between urban blacks and rural whites.

Directed by Carissa Meisner Smit

Featuring: Terry Boyd, Dawn Cornell, Laura Crouch, Rik Deskin*, Jordan Fermstad, Cindy Giese French, Thomas Glass, Austin Gregory,James Lyle, Dan Niven, Gaelen Poage, John Ruoff and Asa Sholdez

FIRST DRAFT! Actors dramatize the work "readers-theatre" style, giving the author a glimpse of what works and what doesn't. After the reading, a moderated Q/A session with the dramatist and audience continues to explore the work.
