Mom, How Did You Meet The Beatles? archivePlaywright Adrienne Kennedy impulsively leaves New York for London with her young son, intent on adapting John Lennon's book 'In His Own Write' for the stage. In the heady atmosphere of the Swinging '60s, she finds herself rubbing shoulders with a dizzying array of celebrities, including all four Beatles. And when her idols, Laurence Olivier - director of the National Theatre - and his influential literary manager Kenneth Tynan, along with actor Victor Spinetti, promise to produce her play, it seems like a dream come true. But slowly the stars seem to align in a different way. Adrienne Kennedy's autobiographical play - told in the form of a near-monologue to her son Adam - is a mesmerising and disquieting tale of a young Black woman's betrayal at the hands of the establishment.


Author(s): Adrienne Kennedy, Adam P Kennedy
