Local Playwright In KC Fringe Fest

Kansas City's annual Fringe Festival provides the opportunity for artists to showcase their talents. Steve Kraske talks with Midwest Dramatists Center director Victor Wishna whose short play, "The Impressionists," is featured in this year's festival.

"It comes from a place of trying to discover some characters," says Wishna, "and sort of let them speak and see where they take the story and bring me to some kind of 'ah ha' moment." 

The Art is a Lie showcase, July 17 - July 25, includes works by playwright Victor Wishna, Margaret Shelby and Lindsay Adams, at Phosphor, 1730 Broadway, Kansas City, Missouri. A complete listing of performances at the Kansas City Fringe Festival, July 16-26, is here.
