OK, OK: The True Story of What I Didn’t Learn About Oklahoma History While Growing Up in Oklahoma
OK, OK is a performance reckoning with the racism of today through the lens of what Katie Pearl learned—and didn’t learn—about Oklahoma history while growing up in Tulsa, OK. Performed by Pearl with a local ensemble of four, OK, OK weaves together personal biography and civic narrative to crack open closed surfaces and get at what’s underneath. Hilarious, heartbreaking and informative, it reveals the truths and untruths we as a country tell ourselves about who we are, where we came from, and where we’re going.
OK, OK was developed, in part, during a 2018 Ko Festival Rehearsal Residency.
Running time: Approx. 85 minutes. Suitable for ages 12 and up.
