Dion Flynn’s Solo Show to Stage at Oldcastle Theatre
Dion Flynn’s solo show, ‘The Only Brown Kid in the Trailer Park,’ comes to Oldcastle Theatre for one night only on Friday, March 25, at 8 p.m. The performance takes audiences along on one man’s unique journey, starting in a trailer park 40 miles south of the Mason-Dixon line and ending in the White House, as depicted on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Presented in unflinching detail and uproarious humor, it is a specific story that transcends individuality, speaking instead to universal themes, struggles and questions. How do we navigate dysfunctional relationships? How do we manage feelings of isolation and alienation? Where is our real home? While audiences can expect to see Flynn’s famous Barack Obama impression, they’ll also witness his portrayal of more than 20 additional characters throughout the 90-minute autobiographical show. Combining comedy, drama, song and audiovisual elements, it is a dynamic performance that showcases Flynn’s many talents to reach out and connect with audiences. ‘The Only Brown Kid in the Trailer Park’ is much more than the story of one bi-racial man’s struggle to rise above abuse, anger and addiction to live his early vision of himself as something more. It’s the story of being human. For additional information or to reserve tickets visit oldcastletheatre.org or call 802-447-0564. Oldcastle Theatre Company is located at 331 Main Street in Bennington.
