<h3>WHAT WOULD CRAZY HORSE DO?</h3>

April 28 - May 28, 2017

Copaken Stage | H&R Block Headquarters in The Kansas City Power and Light District

 

KC Rep proudly presents the world premiere of a new play by preeminent Native American writer Larissa FastHorse. Twin siblings, the last members of their tribe, have just lost their grandfather when the KKK comes knocking with hopes of forming an alliance. A chilling look at the notion of racial purity, this story reveals the challenges contemporary Native Americans face when fighting extinction in a world that seems to have already forgotten they exist. The siblings attempt to find their voices in the outside world, while preserving the heritage that is now theirs alone to carry forward.




<h3>MAN IN LOVE</h3>

April 29 - May 28, 2017

Copaken Stage | H&R Block Headquarters in The Kansas City Power and Light District

 

In a segregated Depression-era city, rent parties rage above, while men hungry for work and love roam the streets. A string of murders occurs but no one suspects the killer is the quiet, charming librarian, Paul Pare Jr. Reactions vary across the city, and as we watch the word spread from person to person, we wonder if the killer’s violence will extend to those closest to him. Written by Kansas City native Christina Anderson the story examines a world where a criminal and his victims can get lost in the crowd.




<h3>ANTONY AND CLEOPATRA</h3>

May 5 - 14, 2017

Spencer Theatre | University of Missouri-Kansas City

 

Special Co-Production with UMKC Theatre

 

Not your average tale of star-crossed lovers, this retelling of Shakespeare's Antony and Cleopatra mingles passion with power, misunderstanding with treachery, all as the fate of the Empire hangs in the balance. Love, lust, adventure, dramatic empresses, poisonous snakes, and the very birth of Christianity. What more could you ask for?

<h3>Between the Lines</h3>

Friday, September 8, 2017 – Sunday, October 1, 2017

Spencer Theatre | University of Missouri-Kansas City


A World Premiere


An enchanting new musical that asks the questions - what would happen if the lines between fiction and fantasy become blurred with reality? When the handsome hero for her favorite book literally starts speaking to her, Delilah thinks she’s found the perfect escape from the humdrum and challenging life of a high school outsider. Constantly on the outs with the ‘in’ crowd, Delilah needs to find a friend who truly understands.

Copaken Stage | H&R Block Headquarters


The winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play that same year, Fences is set in 1950s Pittsburgh against the backdrop of a rapidly changing America. Perhaps the most highly-regarded of Wilson’s soaring ten-play cycle, it tells the gripping story of an African-American father and son and the hopes and dreams to which they desperately cling. Powerful and poetic, Fences is a true American classic.

A World Premiere


It’s July 1977 and the South Bronx is HOT -- from a heat wave, from this new thing that would come to be known as “hip-hop,” and from the number of fires burning throughout the borough. WELCOME TO FEAR CITY takes a jarring, yet hopeful and funny, look at a community trying to get by in the midst of crime, apathy, poverty, and a whole new art form that’s about to electrify the world.
