Legion Arts - Two Iowa playwrights will have their plays premiered at Legion Arts in Cedar Rapids this weekend; My Father's Imaginary Friend by Monica Leo of West Liberty, and Cedar Rapids Famous by Joe Jennison of Iowa City.
From the Legion Arts website:
"Bringing a light touch to issues of intolerance, the pair offer a fun and funny way to look at our own prejudices and ask if we really are as open-minded as we claim to be."
Leo's autobiographical play, performed entirely with puppets, will open each night's show, followed by Jennison's one-act comedy, written for live actors. Leo is founder and lead puppeteer of Eulenspiegel Puppet Theatre, based at Owl Glass Puppetry Center in West Liberty. Jennsion is the executive director of the Iowa Cultural Corridor Alliance, a group of more than 100 arts and culture organizations in the Cedar Rapids Iowa City corridor.
Two performances only: March 27 and 28 at 8 pm. Go here for more information.
