When playwright Kieron Barry and his longtime girlfriend broke up, he was stunned. It took him a long time to process the ‘why’ and the ‘what did I do wrong’. To try and sort it out, he wrote.
The result is The Official Adventures of Kieron and Jade a comedy with its world premiere taking place at Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill tomorrow night.
And that’s what the play is about. Not the break up, but the pros and cons of writing about the break up.
Barry is best known for his one act comedy, Numbers. He has also been showcased locally in the enormously successful 2012 production of Tomorrow in the Battle at Stageworks/Hudson.
We welcome him to The Roundtable this morning along with Bridge Street Theatre founder/co-owner, John Sowle.
