Did you know that Colonel Sanders of KFC fame was from Indiana? So, was that Southern drawl he used in TV commercials just a show? Guess we’ll find out that nugget of information and others about some of the Hoosier state’s most notorious sons at the Fort Wayne showing of Michael Martone’s book-turned-play Alive and Dead In Indiana. The comedy/drama adapted from Martone’s book by play adaptor Doug Long is a fictional account of Sanders and other Hoosiers including James Dean, former Vice President Dan Quayle, and Indiana University sex researcher Alfred Kinsey. Martone was born and raised in Fort Wayne. Content advisory status for Alive & Dead in Indiana: Mild sexual situations.
