Chosen from last year’s 10th annual PANNDORA’S BOX festival of new works, IN KINGS AND FOOLS takes place in the Allman’s backyard over Labor Day weekend. Sam and Mary Ellen are struggling to make sense of a son that has all but cut ties with them and another son who is quickly becoming the neighborhood outcast. They’ve invited both to their annual Labor Day weekend barbeque. You're invited too.

A great actor is generous. They're in tune with themselves physically and emotionally. They come to terms with nerves, and work with it. They are present on stage, and they give themselves completely to the other actors, who are able to give back to them. There is give and take. The story is told, and there is total connection with the audience.
