The Lehman Trilogy
by Stefano Massini
Adapted to English by Ben Power
Directed by John Rensenhouse
May 22nd to June 9th, 2024
“A must-see event. Epic in every conceivable way. You dare not miss.” (New York Post). The Lehman Trilogy, the 2022 Tony Award® Winning Best Play, tells the decade-spanning story of ambition, risk, the American Dream, and a family and company that changed the world. The story follows the original Lehman Brothers, Jewish immigrants from Bavaria, across 163 years as the brothers (and their descendants) build their business empire in 1840s Alabama to early-2000s New York City.
Trouble in Mind
by Alice Childress
Co-Directed by Teisha M. Bankston and Darren Sextro
Featuring Lynn King and KCAT company members Chioma Anyanwu, Jerry Mañan, and John Rensenhouse
More Cast TBA
August 7th to 25th, 2024
From acclaimed novelist, actress, and playwright Alice Childress comes Trouble in Mind, “a monumental work, whose time has finally come” (New York Amsterdam News). A funny and moving comedy-drama following an experienced Black stage actress through the first days of rehearsal for a ‘powerful’ new play about racism—a play unfortunately filled with racist caricatures, shallow dialogue, and led by a condescending white director. A workplace comedy that looks at racism, identity, ego, and the high-pressure world of 1950s Broadway.
Dial M for Murder
Adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher
Original Play by Frederick Knott
Directed by Katie Gilchrist
Featuring Hillary Clemens
September 11th to 29th, 2024
A new adaptation from Jeffrey Hatcher of the classic murder-mystery by Frederick Knott, Dial M for Murder, is “wonderfully theatrical… The pace is quicker, the dialogue is snappier, and the women are smarter and more complex” (The Times of San Diego). A jealous husband spins a dangerous web of suspicion, deception, and murder-that-goes-awry in this psychological thriller that unravels in a way that will have audiences on the edge of their seats. Will Scotland Yard’s best detective solve this twisty mystery of forbidden love?
Doubt: A Parable
by John Patrick Shanley
Directed Gary Heisserer
Featuring KCAT company members Jan Rogge, Matt Schwader, Teisha M. Bankston, and Christina Schafer
“An eloquent and provocative investigation of truth and consequence. A gripping mystery, tightly written” (Time Out New York). Recipient of the 2005 Tony Award® for Best Play and Winner of the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt: A Parable is a “beautifully balanced drama” (Chicago Tribune) that tells a nuanced tale of suspicion and morality. An exacting principal of a Bronx Catholic school wrestles with fact versus fiction when she suspects relations between the charismatic priest and a student.
