Kevin Kling -- famous for his book The Dog Says How, international storytelling festival gigs and National Public Radio commentaries -- will make his second visit to Indianapolis in less than six months Feb. 21, 7:30-9:30 p.m. at the Indiana History Center, 450 W. Ohio St.
Kling's career was launched with his one-man show, Home and Away. His plays include 21A (based on a South Minneapolis bus route) and Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse (based on the children's book by the same name). Kling has received numerous arts grants and fellowships in recognition of his artistry, performs at many prestigious storytelling festivals and has released several CDs. He is the kind of guy who tells stories about the absurdity of the human experience and does so in small, intricate ways, and continues to crank out new works regardless of his congenital birth defect and motorcycle accident, the combination of which left him with limited use of his arms.
Tickets to the show are $20 in advance or $25 at the door. To order tickets or for more information, call 317-232-1882 or go to www.storytellingarts.org.
