No Sleep November is a Living Room - and Kansas City - tradition. A group of playwrights, actors, designers, and production assistants are given just 24 hours to put together an evening of original short plays. The results are often hilarious, often touching, and always a thrill.

The draft party happens Sunday the 19th, the show goes up the following night. Don't miss this incredible explosion of creativity from some of KC's most prominent artists.

Playwrights and actors to be announced soon.

Storyworks: Islamophobia
directed by Jennifer Welch
Writers and dates TBA

StoryWorks is back! This summer we are confronting Islamophobia and hate crime in Kansas City and beyond. Many Muslims say Islamophobia is worse now than it's ever been -- even worse than it was after 9/11. Working with reporters from around the country who have documented this deplorable wave of hate, Storyworks aims to address the inflammatory rhetoric by giving Muslim voices the opportunity to reclaim the narrative and tell us who they truly are. StoryWorks is a documentary theater project from Reveal and the Center for Investigative Reporting.
