KB Productions’ recent mountings of the seriocomic Southern Baptist Sissies and the hard-hitting Mysterious Skin speak volumes for the company’s desire to present edgy material for grown-up audiences. Now they turn to a staged reading of a new play written by John Wesley Lasiter, whose résumé includes actor, producer and communications director for Nashville Cares and, more recently, the Vanderbilt Barnes & Noble. When last we looked, Lasiter also remained a candidate for an at-large seat on the Metro Council in 2015. (He has a Facebook page dedicated to that purpose, and his personal website outlines experiences no other candidate can claim, unless we missed Ronnie Steine’s modeling stint for Calvin Klein.) As possibly the first political candidate/playwright in Music City history, Lasiter has authored a comedy/drama that addresses troubling issues such as homophobia, breast cancer, HIV/AIDS, addiction and personal alienation. The lead character is a young man rejected by his parents who is eventually taken in by a street ministry, where he develops an unlikely friendship with a drug-addled but worldly prostitute. The cast of nine includes Cinda McCain, James Rudolph, Molly Breen, Bryce Conner and Bakari King. Director L.T. Kirk and the playwright will host an audience Q&A after each performance.
