APAC: ‘Kennedy’s Children’ (Nov. 22 only)


Free Readers Theatre; 2:30 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 22

To mark the 46th anniversary of the assassination of President John F. Kennedy, Aloha Performing Arts Company presents “Kennedy’s Children,” a drama by Robert Patrick.

Six unrelated characters gather in a seedy New York bar in 1974 and perform a series of monologues examining their lives in the 1960’s. They have each reached a point of paralysis and stagnation, and together offer an insightful look at the convulsions of the post-summer of love era and its consequences for the decades to come.

The two act play, directed by Jerry Tracy, will be presented as a staged reading, with actors carrying scripts.

Curtain time is 2:30 p.m. and admission is free.

The characters are: Mark, a traumatized young Vietnam veteran, played by Sam Valenti; Sparger, a young alcoholic who works in underground theatre, played by Michael Cservenak; Carla, a frustrated fashion model born a bit too late, played by Kestrel Bishop; Rona, a hippie chick growing up, played by Tiffany Rose Brown; Wanda, a school teacher obsessed with the Kennedys and Camelot, played by Cathy Riehle; and the bartender, played by Joel Michaelson.

Audience members are cautioned this is an adult theatre piece, with some explicit language and vulgar references, and so is recommended for mature audiences.
