New Kieron Barry Comedy Has Its World Premiere @ Bridge St. Theatre [Berkshire on Stage]
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.
“Every time I had a new thought,” he says, “it was a clue.” Inevitably, the diary grew to “gargantuan proportions.” After six months, he says, “I thought, you’re doing a lot of writing about this, and, coincidentally, you’re a playwright. Clearly, the idea had been planted.”
The result is “The Official Adventures of Kieron and Jade” a comedy with its world premiere taking place at Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill on Thursday (April 20). Performances run Thursday-Sunday for two consecutive weeks. Evenings at 7:30pm; Sunday matinees at 2pm; Thursday (April 20) and Sunday, April 23 performances are pay-what-you-can.
