Barry Bostwick Will Star in Reading of Arthur Kopit's BecauseHeCan at 33rd William Inge Theatre Festival

A staged reading of Arthur Kopit’s comedic techno-thriller BecauseHeCan will kick off the 33rd William Inge Theatre Festival at Independence Community College in Independence, KS, March 26 at 7:30 PM.

Directed by Jane Unger, the reading will feature Barry Bostwick, George West Carruth, John Gleeson Connolly, Nathan Darrow and Elyse Knight.

The Inge Festival runs March 26-29. Kopit, who is this year’s Inge Festival Honoree, is a two-time Pulitzer Prize finalist and three-time Tony Award nominee.

BecauseHeCan, according to press notes, is "set in a dangerous new world, and tells of Joseph and Joanne Elliot, a high-powered New York City couple who awake one day to discover that their private lives are no longer private, thanks to a teenage computer hacker with a warped sense of fun."
