our 2018 - 2019 LINEup

Thank you so much to all the incredible artists, technicians, donors and patrons that made our 8th season so incredible! Founded in 2010, our organization has survived entirely on the dedication of our people and the generous donations of our audience. We do not have corporate sponsorship. We make art for Kansas City because you allow us to, and that means the world.

We cannot wait to tell you about all the things we have in store for the coming year! In the meantime, please consider making a tax-deductible donation to enable another year of premieres and continued development of original works by Kansas City artists. Help The Living Room keep living so we can keep them in KC!

And stay in the know about what's coming next by signing up for our special mailing list!

The Living Room is proud to serve as an associate producer for Rising Tide Productions' run of Elephant, a new play by Lewis Morrow!

Elephant was inspired by a real-life incident of a black man being approached by his white boss with an offensive request - to wear a chicken suit as part of a presentation to impress the company's CEO.

The play dives into a discussion about racism in the workplace and uplifts the perspective of Black and Latin individuals, showcasing how microaggressions can fester and explode, and how people of color resist and persist against those tensions.

This new work is currently in its fundraising stage - and there are two great ways you can help! Check out their indigogo campaign, and mark your calendars for their special event on August 16th!

Directed by Bob Linebarger
