Sharing Hoosier History Through Stories: John Dillinger
Frank and Katrina Basile Theater, History Center
The Charm, the Harm and the Daring of Dillinger is a suspense-filled story tracing the life of a run-of-the-mill boy who inadvertently received a world-class criminal education that propelled him into a criminal career. In following John Dillinger from boredom to desperation to sheer audacity, the story chronicles the infamous trickster who outwitted law enforcement in a 14-month wild chase in and around the state of Indiana.
Sharing Hoosier History Through Stories is a partnership between IHS and Storytelling Arts of Indiana to bring Indiana history alive in new and fresh ways. This year’s storyteller, Sally Perkins, began telling stories as a volunteer at Riley Children’s hospital. Through Storytelling Arts of Indiana, she was awarded the Frank Basile Emerging Stories Fellowship in 2009. In 2011, she was commissioned by Indiana Landmarks and SAI to create and tell a story of the historic Central Avenue Methodist Church. Sally also tells stories at schools, churches and public events.
