By Finegan Kruckemeyer with input from the citizens of Milwaukss
Young Lenny sees things other people can't. Traveling around his beloved city, he is troubled by some of the things he sees, so he decides to make a difference by sharing his unique insights with his community - and magical things start to happen. Inspired by conversations with young people and families of Milwaukee, internationally renowned playwright Finegan Kruckemeyer (THE SNOW) explores the challenges of growing up in a world this is increasingly difficult through which to navigate.
This new play reading is part of the Foundry - a series of new play readings that forge the next generation of new plays, new artists and new audiences. This next phase in First Stage's new play development both nurtures the talents of our local playwrights and artists, and looks globally for stories and the tellers of those new tales - tales that build awareness and understanding, foster empathy and promote unity.
