IN MEMORY OF THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF MLK JR.’S ASSASSINATON AND IN CELEBRATION OF JAMES STILL’S 20th SEASON AS IRT’S PLAYWRIGHT-IN-RESIDENCE
ABOUT: James Still’s play April 4, 1968: Before We Forgot How to Dream had its world-premiere at the Indiana Repertory Theatre in 2015. The play chronicles one fictitious and Indy-based family’s experience on the night Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated. Still’s research included dozens of first-hand accounts from the men and women who witnessed Robert Kennedy’s speech from the back of a pick-up truck near 16th and Broadway streets in downtown, Indianapolis. Those first-hand accounts inspired the writing of each character in April 4, 1968.
This play was produced by the Indiana Repertory Theatre as part of the Indiana Series, which are plays commissioned by the IRT that take an in-depth look at lesser known Hoosiers and Indiana events.
