NEW YORK (AP) ' Jack Kerouac's (KEHR'-oo-ak) only full-length play will be staged for the first time this fall.

Merrimack Repertory Theatre and the University of Massachusetts Lowell said Monday ' on what would have been Kerouac's 90th birthday ' that they will produce the three-act play called "Beat Generation" in the novelist's hometown of Lowell, Mass.

The world premiere of the play ' staged reading for eight performances only ' is the centerpiece of the 2012 Jack Kerouac Literary Festival, which will be held Oct. 10-14.

Kerouac wrote "Beat Generation" ' which draws on his life and those of other Beat writers, including Neal Cassady and Allen Ginsberg ' in 1957, the same year his classic "On the Road" was released.
