Bring your colleagues and friends to Phillip Johnston’s presentation on the research for the play “Tom”. You will enjoy learning about everything that goes into researching, writing and performing a play as a professional.
The play is based on the correspondence, photographs and diaries of Tom McKinney, a member of the Irish fusiliers in World War I. This past summer, it saw a highly successful staging in Belfast, and plans are underway to bring it to the Krannert Center soon.
