About the event
Get Woke! Catskills announces an online evening with playwright Kyle Bass on Thursday, November 19 at 6:30pm. Bass will read his new one-man play Citizen James, or The Young Man Without a Country, based on the early adult life of James Baldwin, which was commissioned by Syracuse Stage and is scheduled to tour schools beginning next year. A Q&A will follow. There is no fee to attend, but pre-registration is required.
Bass is the author of Possessing Harriet which premiered at Syracuse Stage in 2018, was produced by Franklin Stage Company in 2019, and is slated for production at East Lynne Theater Company next summer. Bass’ new play salt/city/blues will premiere at Syracuse Stage in 2021.
Bass is Associate Artistic Director at Syracuse Stage and Assistant Professor in the Department of Theater at Colgate University where he previously served as the Burke Endowed Chair for Regional Studies. He is the current Susan P. Stroman Visiting Playwright at the University of Delaware. A two-time recipient of the New York Foundation for the Arts (NYFA) Fellowship (for fiction in 1998, for playwriting in 2010), a finalist for the Princess Grace Playwriting Award, and Pushcart Prize nominee, Kyle holds an M.F.A. in playwriting from Goddard College, and is a proud member of the Dramatists Guild of America. He is represented by The Barbara Hogenson Agency.
This event is made possible with funds from the Decentralization Program, a regrant program of the New York State Council on the Arts (NYSCA) with the support of Gov. Andrew Cuomo and the NY State Legislature, and administered in Delaware County by the Roxbury Arts Group. Get Woke! is sponsored by friends of Fair for All, United Ministry of Delhi, Bushel Collective, and MARK Project.
