Majestic Rep Presents White Trash Thriller KID SISTER

Majestic Rep Presents White Trash Thriller KID SISTER

Majestic Repertory Theatre is excited to present the regional premiere of Chicago playwright Will Kern's KID SISTER, a pulp thriller straight from the pages of the Weekly World News.

Demi, a perpetually stoned 19-year-old single mom and American Idol wannabe, believes only one thing stands between herself and singing superstardom-her stalker ex-boyfriend. To get this psycho out of her life forever, she elicits the aid of her brother Cassius, recently returned from a stretch in prison. But ex-con Cassius wants more than she's willing to give- custody of her newborn baby girl. This thrilling Southern Gothic-noir gives a new spin on classic dime store crime novels.

"I'd been a fan of Will's plays since I directed his play HELLCAB years ago," says Artistic Director Troy Heard. "We started a long distance artistic relationship after that and he sent me a stack of his scripts. KID SISTER has always stuck out for me because of its white trash aesthetic - it reminds me of home. There's definitely a Tarantino vibe to this show."

KID SISTER continues Majestic Rep's "revolutionary" second season, which focuses on hot topics effecting today's America. Following the fiftieth anniversary production of HAIR: THE AMERICAN TRIBAL LOVE-ROCK MUSICAL, KID SISTER shines a light on the starving class and will speak to their glam-rock production of MARIE ANTOINETTE coming next spring. Other shows in the season include ANIMAL FARM, AN OCTOROON and the sci-fi world premiere SENTIENCE.

Performances of KID SISTER will be September 28th through October 14th, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8 p.m. and Sundays at 5 p.m. Majestic Repertory Theatre performs at 1217 S. Main Street. General admission tickets are $25 and are on sale now at www.majesticrepertory.com. Call 702-423-6366 for details.
