Kansas City Public Theatre has announced its next production, “Adult Child/Dead Child” by Claire Dowie, directed by Emily Lange.
The unnamed protagonist (played by Kaitlin Gould) of this one-person show is confronted throughout her life with excessive discipline and punishment from her parents. Whether it’s the eye-for-an-eye punishment her father insists upon, or the hours of claustrophobia and inactivity spent corralled in the cupboard under the stairs, throughout the play we see the building tension that comes from living with parents who would rather chastise than show love.
“Adult Child/Dead Child” is a part of Kansas City Public’s Theatre Lab Series and runs April 1st 7:30 pm at Capsule and April 4th
