A one-man play celebrates JFK's brother Bobby.


RFK, which opens at the Cleveland Play House tonight, is "the story of a very human effort in politics," says director Seth Gordon.

The playwright, Jack Holmes, who portrays the presidential hopeful, developed the one-man show in Los Angeles several years ago. Gordon saw the New York production and thought Cleveland audiences would appreciate a good political story during campaign season. "People, regardless of their politics, will get a sense of the importance of citizenship," he says. "I want them to emerge with a renewed sense of urgency."

The play traces Kennedy's political life and death — from attorney general to assassination on the presidential trail — following him as he steps out of his big brother's shadow to become one of the nation's top civil rights leaders.
Oct. 27-28, 8 p.m.; Sun., Oct. 29, 2 p.m.; Oct. 30-31, 8 p.m.
