Not Your Typical Fringe Production, but Worthwhile
Driving the Body Back
KC Fringe Festival
Anyone who is a midwesterner or interested in family history would like "Driving the Body Back," a one-woman show written by Iowa's poet laureate and based on her book. Alas, when I attended on Tuesday, there were only about five people in the audience, but the show deserved more audience members. The performance is in the form of a memory play about several characters from the playwright's past, and is akin to a scrapbook or family album of her relatives whom she has known or discovered through tracing her past. Nothing racy or controversial, but a lovely and interesting play for the whole family which will make you recall all the people from your past and maybe even make you want to delve further into your own family history.
