Dave Hanson's "Audience" reading Apr. 11

In a theater between this world and the next, four duets sit and watch parts of each others lives play on an unseen screen. Why must they watch with their "partner?" Who is the usher? When does it end? Simple questions with complicated answers - designed to be told with the audience "on stage" and the performers "in the seats."

The Midwest Dramatists Center presents David Hanson's "Audience," starring Erika Baker, Joe De Maria, Kelli Morford Hahn, Bonita Hanson, Laura Jacobs, Ellen Kirk, Frank Lillig, Lindsay Lillig, Mike Ott, Nicole Santorella

7pm April 11, The Midwest Dramatists Center, 3607 Pennsylvania

Dramaturgy Open Office Hour

MDC Artistic Director Alyson Germinder helped created the Dramaturgy Open Office Hour:

In Fall 2015, Kansas City hosted a new branch of the Dramaturgy Open Office Hour Project, which originally began with Jeremy Stoller's initiative in New York City. Amanda launched the branch after hearing about the project at the Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA) 2015 conference and chatting with Jeremy. After seeing the project’s feature in American Theatre magazine, we believed there was a need for this project in the Kansas City community.
