The Savannah Community Theatre presents: Arnold Sundgaard’s “KEN”
Written by Arnold Sundgaard as a short story for The New Yorker, 1959
Adapted for the stage by Tom Coleman III, 2016
Produced by Stratton Leopold
“KEN” is based on the true account of a nightmarish train ride which the story writer took in 1933 while he was a student at the Yale Department of Drama. When a fellow student dies, he is elected—under pressure—to take the casket containing the boy’s body back to his parents’ home in Portland, Oregon. The story centers around his trip, the funeral that follows, and the events that changed his life.
