RFK: A Portrait of Robert F. Kennedy

By Jack Holmes

Performed by Joel Sandel / Directed by Rebecca Greene Udden

October 15 - 25 online

Tickets: $10 - $40

Recommended for audiences 15 and older.

By late summer, 1964, Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy was a deeply wounded man. Still in shock and consumed with grief and guilt over the assassination of his older brother, he was at a critical juncture in his life. The 1964 presidential election was approaching, and President Johnson, who had been dangling the possibility of the vice-presidency to RFK, finally called Kennedy over to the White House inform him of his decision. The result of that meeting and the subsequent direction for the next, and last, four years of his life are the focus of RFK: A Portrait of Robert Kennedy.

Houston favorite Joel Sandel reprises the role of Bobby Kennedy in this powerful and timely solo production. RFK takes the audience on an exploration of Kennedy's professional life and all its highs and lows. "This play is a great reminder of the impact of civic passion combined with eloquence and intelligence," says Udden. "Regardless of personal political ideology there is an elemental truth at the heart of RFK that will reverberate, on some level, with everybody who experiences this remarkable play," offers actor Sandel.
