The St. Francis Drama Project presents ‘Getting Out’
Barons Theater in Whiskey Row
$10  | 7 p.m.
“Getting Out” is the first play written by Tony Award- and Pulitzer Prize-winning Kentucky native Marsha Norman. The play premiered at Actors Theatre’s Humana Festival in 1977 and is now being presented by The National Youth Arts St. Francis Drama Project. The play follows Arlene, a character played by two actresses, as she tries to piece her life in Louisville back together after being recently released from prison for second-degree murder. The question at the heart of the play is, can Arlene beat the odds and become a better person? Or is she doomed to a life of crime? The production is for mature audiences and contains profanity and adult themes.
