Full Length Play, Drama
Adrienne Kennedy has been a force in the American theatre since the early 1960s, influencing several generations of playwrights with her hauntingly fragmentary lyrical dramas.
Diary of Lights: New York about 1955 is a series of scenes which depict a group of friends during one evening in New York City, in the mid-nineteen-fifties. Part dramatic literature, part dance, and part musical theatre, Diary of Lights... is a window into a part of American culture, expressed through the unique voice of one of America's most formidable dramatists.
"To many, Ms. Kennedy has blended the surreal and the social to invent a new dramatic form." - The New York Times
