Walker Ave. Chalk in the Rain, a full-length drama by Oklahoma playwright Bret Jones, goes into its second weekend as the Native American New Play Festival kicks up the activity level with staged play readings of new work by other American Indian authors, Comanche and Kiowa singing, native dancers and a performance monologue commemorating the Oklahoma City Bombing in 1995.
