On Thursday August 29th, Lemon Andersen (playwright, actor and Tony Award-winning poet) will take the stage at Guild Hall in East Hampton for a special engagement performance of County of Kings, his acclaimed memoir. We hope you can join us for this memorable evening to start Labor Day weekend 2013.
Originally presented by Spike Lee at the Public Theater, Lemon’s one-man journey towards self-discovery flows from hard-edged drama to street poetry, a vivid portrait of his adverse yet often humorous coming-of-age experiences during 1980’s and 90’s Brooklyn. Andersen’s story taps a loving relationship between a mother and son, neighborhood mores, young romance, juvenile crime, addiction and ultimately redemption and personal triumph. County of Kings has been staged for American audiences from coast-to-coast, in Europe, Australia and South Africa.
