Shirley Knight to return to Independence for Inge Festival

Actress Shirley KnightThe celebrated actress Shirley Knight—who has achieved the highest honors in film, television, and theatre—returns to her native Kansas to perform a the 32nd annual William Inge Theatre Festival. 

Shirley Knight takes the stage in featured roles in the Thursday, May 2, presentation of “A Great Wilderness,” and again on Saturday, May 4, in the finale Tribute “Farther Off From Heaven,” a salute to William Inge’s legacy.

There have been many memorable performers in the film versions of William Inge plays, but a list of the most enjoyable will have to include Shirley Knight in “The Dark at the Top of the Stairs.”  Knight earned the first of her two Academy Award nominations for the portrayal of the withdrawn Reenie—a character that Inge patterned after his younger sister.

After receiving the second of her two Oscar Nominations for “Sweet Bird of Youth,” she has never been out of work as an actress.  Her recognition includes a Tony Award (and two additional nominations), three Emmys (ten nominations), two Golden Globes (three nominations) and Best Actress award at the Venice Film Festial.

Her new film—“Redwood Highway”-opens at the Ashland Oregon film festival.  Her Steven King film “Mercy will open later in 2013.”

Tickets to see Miss Knight in “A Great Wilderness” are $25 for premier seating and $15 for reserved.  “Farther Off From Heaven” tickets are also priced at $25 and $15.  The curtain time for both productions is 7:30 p.m., both at the William Inge Theatre at Independence for further information on her career.
