Hundred Years Dreaming

Honour Kane’s work has been produced by New York’s Public Theatre and the Annual Mardi Gras Arts Festival in Sydney, Australia. Her plays have been developed by Lincoln Center Theater, Playlabs in Minneapolis, the Boston Women in Theater Festival, and London’s Royal Court Theatre.

For her fellowship year, Kane plans to complete a trio of plays—“In Pigeon House,” “Crackskull Row,” and “7dayz”—that constitute a portrait, loosely based on her own family history, of a traveling band of Dublin actors during the years 1898 through 1999. Sharing one performing ensemble, the trio will use the theatrical convention and musical form contemporary to the time period covered in each work.

A member of New Dramatists, Kane earned her BFA at the New York University Graduate Acting Program and an MFA in playwriting from Brown University. She has received playwriting fellowships from the National Endowment for the Arts and the New York Foundation for the Arts as well as a Pew Fellowship in the Arts, and was awarded a residency at Yaddo, an arts community in Saratoga Springs, New York.
