The World Premiere production of “Four Children” has been brought to life by the Kansas City Actors Theatre on the City Stage inside Union Station as a minimalist, sadly shocking view of war against children and on a number of levels. It is not to be missed during its several week run. The playwright has taken snippets from the diaries of four childhood victims of successful or attempted genocides. Their testimony is woven together paragraph by paragraph into a seamless, searing whole despite each being separated by decades and thousands of miles.

'Bryant Park is at 42nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues in New York City that was first a potters field, then a reservoir with 50 foot walls, a Union Army encampment and finally a jewel of a park in 1934. By the 1970's it had become a drug infested, dangerous place. My theatre company presented a week long celebration with Broadway plays, music and more to try to draw attention to its needing help. Finally in the 90's a corporation was formed that renewed the park and it's now again a little jewel. I played chess in the park for many years and the poems were written in the park.'
