Lynn King, a Kansas City, Kan. resident, has been performing for more than 20 years. King, who grew up in the Kansas City area, was a schoolmate of State Sen. David Haley, D-4th Dist.
King now is appearing in her best role ever, according to many. The role she plays is Mrs. Davis, a woman who attends an anger management session.
The theater production called “The Session,” is sponsored by Kansas City Melting Pot Theater Co. In the play, women from diverse walks of life share their anger with each other during an anger management session, in a unique satire of drama and laughter.
As a starts out, four women all from different walks of life express their anger. At first the women are filled with anger and hate in talking to each other. And as the play proceeds the women become not only sympathetic but understanding of each other in an array of dramatic expression, highly heartwarming and real.
“The Session” was written by local playwright Harvey Williams. Williams is the current head of the Kansas City Melting Pot Theater Co. This is the company’s second production space in Kansas City. Williams wrote about his current play, “More often than not a veil of anger lifted exposes a wall of pain … such pain that even nature’s most powerful vaccine, the passage of time, can but incubate.”
This is King’s second time appearing with The Melting Pot. “Old School Ghetto Gospel” was the first theater production that Melting Pot Theater Co. produced. The second is “The Session.”
The play is performed at Just Off Broadway Theater, 3051 Central, Kansas City, Mo. Show times are 7:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday and 2 p.m. on Sunday. The final performance is Sept. 8.
