And Then There Were None

by Agatha Christie
Dates: August 2017 (rehearsals begin July 2017)
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: John Rensenhouse

Many consider “And Then There Were None” to be Christie’s masterpiece, and she described it as her most difficult mystery to write. It’s the story of 10 strangers who assemble at an island mansion where murder ensues. The ultimate stylish, witty and nerve-wracking mystery with a built-in puzzle that keeps audiences guessing.

A Lie of the Mind

by Sam Shepard
Dates: September 2017 (rehearsals begin August 2017)
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Cinnamon Schultz

Following our 2010 revival of “True West,” this is KCAT’s second Shepard production. This play’s first off-Broadway production in 1985 won both the Drama Desk Award and the New York Drama Critic’s Circle Award for Best Play, and it is generally considered to be not only among Shepard’s greatest works, but a showcase for tour de force performances.

King Lear

by William Shakespeare
(in partnership with UMKC Theatre)
Dates: October 2017 (rehearsals begin September 2017)
Location: Spencer Theater in James Olson Performing Arts Center
Director: Ed Stern

Starring Theodore Swetz as Lear in a co-production between KCAT and UMKC Theatre.

Sea Marks

by Gardner McKay
Dates: January 2018 (rehearsals begin December 2017)
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Jan Rogge

This two-hander premiered in 1981 and has enjoyed some notable recent revivals, including one a couple of years ago at NYC’s Irish Rep. The story is set in Ireland and has some elements that harken back to KCAT’s first production (2005’s “The Cripple of Inishmaan” ).


by David Hare
Dates: May/June 2018 (rehearsals begin May 2018)
Location: City Stage at Union Station
Director: Darren Sextro

KCAT has never produced a David Hare play, and this is one of his finer – and more accessible – works. The story, which takes place in an apartment over the course of an evening, delves into the past affair of an older man and younger woman. This work has won both the Olivier Award (for Best Play) and Tony Award (for Best Revival of a Play). It enjoyed a critically and commercially successful revival in London and New York in 2014-15. It’s romantic, smart, poignant and funny.
