Welcome to Independence, Kansas, home of the 31st annual William Inge Theatre Festival.
The trip was fine; no delays and the weather is great. The festivities begin tonight with the performance of an unproduced play of Inge’s, Off The Main Road, and then tomorrow begins the workshops and fun.
I’ve already met this year’s honoree, David Henry Hwang; I was sitting in the lobby writing this post when he and his wife checked in. And I rode up from Tulsa with one of our guest performers, Tzi Ma.
Time to get ready for the show.
