RFK's granddaughter to make New York stage debut

NEW YORK — The daughter of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. and granddaughter of Robert F. Kennedy will make her New York stage debut next month in the Greek tragedy “Antigone.”

Kick Kennedy will play the title role in Sophocles’ timeless play about a woman willing to die to defend her family’s honor. Performances at The Storm Theatre Company’s stage at The Church of Notre Dame on 114th Street begin Jan. 10.

Kennedy, who has been on TV in “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” ‘‘Gossip Girl” and “The Newsroom,” also shares her family’s passion for environmentalism and advocates for clean water worldwide.

The 24-year-old will be directed by Peter Dobbins, artistic director of The Storm Theatre.

The play explores the roles of fate, virtue and loyalty to the state.
