Kennedy's Children: A Play in Two Acts

Front Cover
Samuel French, Inc., 1976 - American drama - 57 pages
2 Reviews
This is an evocative drama of American idealism and the tragic fallout from the euphoria of the 1960s. Five lost souls are gathered in a bar, Valentine's Day, 1974: Wanda, a secretary-turned-schoolteacher, keeping John Kennedy's memory alive despite the inevitable slurs; Sparger, an actor grown bitter and cynical as New York's vital underground theatre movement becomes a commercial wasteland; Rona, a political activist who sees the movement collapsing from self-indulgence and apathy; Mark, a Vietnam veteran, now a confused, dissipated drug addict; and Carla, a dipsomaniacal actress channeling Marilyn Monroe.

A superb cross-section of the lives of several survivors of the tumultuous Sixties, looking back now with weary--and witty--perspective. A must-read, and a great play to perform.

I find Neil Simon sort of hit or miss, but this play is pretty funny. I'm doing the part of Bobbi... need to start studying lines at some point. Read full review
