Winner of the Pulitzer Prize, this American stage classic takes place in the Mississippi household of the Magrath sisters. Babe has just shot her husband because she didn’t like his looks. Meg is back in town after a failed attempt in the music business and a nervous breakdown. And poor Lenny – everyone has forgotten her birthday … and her pet horse was just struck by lightning! With warm hearted laughs, the sisters learn to forgive the past, face the present and embrace the future in this award-winning Broadway comedy.
Our 10th Season
Classically trained actors. Classic 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 in settings across the city. A war story at the National WWI Museum … a meditation on death at the Muehlebach Funeral Home. Each production is an experience, bringing the actors and their words into focus. And because The Actors Theatre is mobile, without the overhead of a performance space, nearly all income goes to pay the best local actors, designers and technicians, so that the art of theatre can flourish in Kansas City.
