More Info / Calendar

Winner of two Drama Desk Special Awards. Arguably the best work yet from one of America’s wisest, most clever new playwrights of the past decade. In The Realistic Joneses, Will Eno connects two suburban couples who have so much more in common than their identical homes and their shared last names. As their relationships begin to irrevocably intertwine, the Joneses must decide between their idyllic fantasies and their imperfect realities and, ultimately, confront mortality.

Witty, wise, romantic, and oh-so-French. Kansas City Actors Theatre introduces an acclaimed but neglected playwright with this, his love letter to France. When a failed American novelist inherits a luxurious but crumbling Paris apartment, he’s sure his fortune has turned…until he learns that the apartment comes with a nonagenarian tenant and her spinster daughter. Not only is this a Kansas City premiere, but it is the first time an Israel Horovitz play has been professionally produced here in nearly 25 years.

Great actors.  Smart plays.

The Actors Theatre brings professional drama to Kansas City, in a vibrant presentation for the virtual age.

The Theatre, formed by a veteran collective of artists, reimagines modern classics, sometimes in settings across the city. A war story at the National WWI Museum … a meditation on death at the Muehlebach Funeral Home.  For our 12th Season, however, all performances will be held in H&R Block City Stage at Union Station!

Regardless of location, each production is an experience, bringing the actors and their words into focus. Nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
