The Mark Of Kane
Playwright: Mark Pracht
“This robust new play reveals the writers and artists who launched an enduring icon of American popular culture, Batman.” - Chicago On Stage
In 1939, two young friends huddled in a Bronx apartment and created a legend. A hero who represents an enduring chapter in the tale of the American comic book. One, Bob Kane, would profit from that legend for years to come. The other would be all but forgotten. This is the legacy of the mark of Kane.
This play begins “The Four-Color Trilogy,” highlighting major turning points in American comic book history.
“Enormously thought-provoking, delightfully stimulating, and wretchedly heartbreaking.” - Around The Town Chicago
“Recommended for more than just comic-book lovers.” - New City Chicago
