On Stage with Kevin Kling
Author Kevin Kling
Minnesota Historical Society Press (November 15, 2013)
A behind the scenes look at the plays of Minnesota's favorite storyteller, Kevin Kling.
From 21A, the one-man show that launched a career and a whole new perspective on riding the bus, to a sneak peek at the new Minnesota Public Radio–sponsored Gulliver Unraveled, On Stage with Kevin Kling gives readers a behind-the-curtain view of one of Minnesota’s most popular storytellers.
This collectible volume contains the full text of three of Kevin Kling’s stage pieces—21A, Ice Fishing, and Scarecrow on Fire—as well as excerpts from Of Mirth and Mischief and Back Home. Previously unpublished poems, short pieces, and a conversation between the Fitzgerald eater’s Tony Bol and the writer provide a window into Kling’s creative and collaborative process.
Kevin Kling has been telling his off-kilter stories with humor, heart, and thoughtful philosophizing for over twenty years, and this book brings readers right on stage with the master.
Kevin Kling, well-known playwright, storyteller, and author, has been an artist in residence for the past three years at Minnesota Public Radio’s Fitzgerald eater. Of Mirth and Mischief, Back Home, and Gulliver Unraveled, all featured in this volume, were created in conjunction with this program.
