Central Standard

David Wayne Reed

What happens to a young man who spends his childhood off the grid,  growing up in a rural area with no formal creative outlets?

He goes on to write and act in his own one man stage production, of course.

On the second half of Wednesday's Central Standard, we are joined by local writer, director, artist, and man-about-town David Wayne Reed, whose one-man show Jolly Rancher sold-out the Fishtank Performance Studio in Kansas City last April.

He'll discuss what drives him to write and share his childhood experiences with theatergoing audiences.

Matthew Long-Middleton has been a talk-show producer, community producer, Media Training Manager and now the Community Engagement Manager at KCUR. You can reach him at Matthew@kcur.org, or on Twitter @MLMIndustries.
