TOM KEY is an Atlanta theatre director and playwright who adapted Walker Percy's The Moviegoer and Lost In The Cosmos for the stage. He serves as Artistic Director of downtown Atlanta’s celebrated Theatrical Outfit He will speak on the meaning of Lost In The Cosmos for contemporary American culture, and the role of art -- especially theatre -- in building community in a fragmenting society.

“Recreating comic and dramatic excerpts from his hit stage adaptations in downtown Atlanta’s Theatrical Outfit of Lost in the Cosmos and The Moviegoer, Tom Key reveals what profound community transaction happens when language is center stage, and especially when its Walker Percy’s.  This theatrical art form invites us to recognize what we have in common is far greater than what divides us and that truly we all belong to one another.”
