An Evening With Alfred Uhry at Harper College
Join Kevin Long, Director of Theatre, and Richard Middleton-Kaplan, Dramaturg, as they host Pulitzer Prize, Oscar, and two-time Tony Award winning playwright Alfred Uhry in a conversation focusing on what has been called his “Atlanta Trilogy” of plays. In 2013, Long directed both the musical Parade (which was awarded Best Revival of a Musical, Resident Non-Equity by BroadwayWorld Chicago) and the play Driving Miss Daisy. With his production of The Last Night of Ballyhoo running this summer at the College, he will have directed the complete trilogy of Uhry’s work. Please join us as we discuss the poignant themes and timeless relevance of these works. The evening will also feature live performances from the casts of Parade, Driving Miss Daisy and The Last Night of Ballyhoo. Urhy will sign copies of his works in the lobby after the event.
