Interview with Kimball Allen

by Heather Beasley

Kimball Allen’s theatrical work to date is a mix of deeply personal confession and performance art. When mistakes on his career path landed him in prison, he began keeping a journal as part of his self-rehabilitation. Although his formal education had not exposed him previously to performance studies or theatre history, he felt drawn to theatre as the best art form in which to tell his story. His self-produced first play, “Secrets of a Gay Mormon Felon,” was first staged in Kansas City. His performances have since led him deeper into his encounters with live theatre, as he generates new work that explores controversial topics and taboos within his former religion and his personal life.

I share this newsworthy family press release with my boyfriend. As I read my nephew’s full name, he stops me midsentence and without missing a beat air banjos a toe tappin Appalachian folk tune. He channels a spot on reenactment of the hillbilly boy from the Jon Voight-Burt Reynolds-Ned Beatty fictional thriller…“Deliverance.”
