Bainbridge Performing Arts hosts “An Evening with Playwright Robert Schenkkan,” the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of “The Kentucky Cycle,” at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 20.

Schenkkan will discuss the importance of history as a dramatic tool for illuminating the issues of our own time. He will also describe how “The Kentucky Cycle” evolved from a one-act play in 1984 to the epic six-hour masterpiece that premiered at Seattle’s Intiman Theatre in 1991.

The free program is supported in part by a grant from Humanities Washington, a state-wide nonprofit organization supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the state of Washington, and contributions from individuals and foundations.
