Theatre Theme Sets Tone For ‘Runaway’

Original Review on KC Applauds

For a fun show with some mystery and suspense, check out “Runaway” by Denny Dey, a 50-minute shadowy tale between a teenage girl filled with angst and an friendly custodian in a theatre.

Sometimes, when least expected, something occurs in a person’s life that leads to good or bad decisions. When those things happen, sometimes the answer lies clearly in plain sight, and maybe it becomes more clear as the night approaches in a theatre after the closing of a popular Shakespearean play.

“Sixty-five-year-old Charles Wright is a custodian. Twenty-one-year-old Beth Warren is a “runaway”. The River Bend Theatre is the scene. The hour is midnight. Kansas City playwright Denny Dey brings a touching story about an old man’s love of the theatre and a young woman’s desire to escape the insensitive circumstances of her life. Two seemingly invisible souls find a rare moment together,” according the Fringe program. The play features Warren Deckert and Maddie Cates.
