A Doll’s House - Kansas City Actors Theatre
A scandal when it was first staged 140 years ago, “A Doll’s House” is the story of a married woman seeking to carve out her own place in the world. Still startlingly relevant, this show will be sure to feature the type of actor-first performances audiences have come to expect from KCAT. “A Doll’s House” will be directed by Darren Sextro, who previously directed “Skylight,” “My Old Lady,” and “Crimes of the Heart” for KCAT.
Master Harold and the Boys - Kansas City Actors Theatre
Athol Fugard’s semi-autobiographical account of growing up in South Africa during the apartheid era, “’Master Harold’… and the Boys” is a story of the fraught and complicated relationship between a teenage boy and the two African natives who work in his parents’ tea shop. A surprising and subtle reflection on how institutional racism and bigotry affects all of those living within it, this production stands to be an unforgettable classic in its own right.
