Catch a performance of the ripple, the wave that carried me home, playing now on our downtown Copaken Stage! This triumphant new play by KCK-native Christina Anderson (OriginKC: World Premiere Man in Love) is a homegrown masterpiece: a joyful and touching exploration of legacy and justice that follows a Black family from Kansas as they fight to desegregate their town’s public pool.
Dive in and experience this evocative new play! Order tickets today for a transformative theatre experience, with the sort of locally-sourced story you won’t see on streaming!
