JFK play to be presented

Dennis McAndrews will perform his self-written play “If JFK Survived Dallas: Presidential Reflections of an Elder Statesman in North Carolina,” on Saturday, July 29. The Stokes County Arts Council in Danbury, N.C., will host the event in their new Arts Place of Stokes venue, 502 N. Main St.

Two performances will be presented.

This year — 2017 — marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of President John F. Kennedy – one of the most admired and criticized presidents during his short life. Historians frequently speculate how the world might have been different if Kennedy had lived to complete his presidency.

The play is filled with many historical insights and surprising predictions, leaving audiences wondering, “What would our nation be like today had JFK survived?”

The play has been performed around the world in multiple venues, including in Ireland at the Kennedy Summer School, and across the East Coast at locations such as Georgetown University, Martha’s Vineyard, Villanova University, and in Texas to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of President Kennedy.

McAndrews is the founder and managing partner of multi-state law firm, McAndrews Law Offices, P.C.

A former prosecutor, he successfully pursued a conviction against John E. DuPont, and also is a frequent commentator for the national news media involving legal and political issues.

Performance times are 3 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $15 per person; $12 for Stokes Arts Members, and $10 for students. Advance tickets are available by calling 336-593-8159.
