Nathan Louis Jackson, KC Repertory resident playwright interview by Robert Trussell
Something historic happened in early 2010. That’s when Kansas City audiences got their first look at
“Broke-ology,” a play that had just been produced by Lincoln Center in
New York. It told the story of an African-American family — two brothers
and their aging father, whose body has started to fail him and who is
haunted by the memory of his late wife. Family dramas are hardly unusual, but the writer and the setting made the show unique.
