Monday Night Playwright series at the KC Rep: THE RIPPLE, THE WAVE THAT CARRIED ME HOME
September 10 @ 7:00 PM CDT
The Ripple, the Wave that Carried Me Home, by Christina Anderson & Directed by Marissa Wolf
Over three generations, the Collen family fights to integrate public pools in a Kansas town. It is a battle that defines them, almost destroys them, and changes them forever. Weaving a powerhouse fugue of voices and memories, Christina Anderson (Man in Love), offers a love letter to her hometown of Kansas City through both searing honesty and buoyant transcendence.
Forwarding Kansas City as a major national center for the development and production of new works, our OriginKC: New Works Program offers playwrights the financial, creative, and artistic resources required to develop vital, diverse, theatrical work, including our popular Monday Night Playwright Series events. Step into the world of a new play as it’s being built, and meet fantastic playwrights whose work electrify stages across the country! Supporting hot local and national playwrights, Monday Night Playwright Series brings to life script-in-hand readings of future hit shows. All events are FREE and open to the public – all are welcome!
