The Sacramento Bee published a preview of our new world premiere play by Gary Wright, Of Kites and Kings. Read the Full Article
This intimate new play explores the life of the American icon Benjamin Franklin and his relationship with his son, William. In this story of family rifts, love of country, and being true to one’s beliefs, both men rebel against tyrants: Benjamin against Britain’s King George and William against his father, making the two foes. The play follows the men as distant thunder of the American Revolution begins to rumble, then through the chaos and storm at the dawn of the nation, and echoes back to Franklin’s famed lightning experiment throughout.
