This play follows a nonlinear storyline based on images suggested by Sandburgs poem as well as portions of the city of Kalamazoos history.-The Sins of Kalamazoo, poses the question: I hear America, I hear, what do I hear? Americas national narrative is made up of both the shining promise of the future and of the recognition of the decay as its cultural identity becomes fragmented through time. The theatre provides an exceptional cultural space for re-examining Americas perceived identity through interpretation of its past which may help to answer the question what do I hear? This play combines the unique shared temporal space of theatre to examine moments in American history. The play is concerned with illustrating how the re-presentation on the stage of events and images from Americas past, firmly embedded in the national narrative, can aid in informing and reforming the cultural identity forged through the collective memory of the audience.
