About the Event


kNew: The Poetrical Performance (poetry and theatrical) 

Poet is a gifted performer and an excellent writer. His words are written in fire and delivered with thunder. The show is intense, gripping: one finds oneself entirely invested with the characters.

The work, drawn partially from real life events, takes us from the father’s last moments to the son, himself a father now, determined to be for his son what his own father never was for him. When he finds himself in Kansas City to (somewhat reluctantly) attend his father’s funeral, he discovers family he never knew he had.

-Kelly Luck

The Poetic Screenplay. In July, the show won the Producer's Pick Award at the 2019 KC FRINGE FESTIVAL. 

Rated: PG13
