Kansas City Repertory Theatre - KC Rep

Up Next at the Rep:


The winner of the 1987 Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play that same year, Fences is set in 1950s Pittsburgh against the backdrop of a rapidly changing America. Perhaps the most highly-regarded of Wilson’s soaring ten-play cycle, it tells the gripping story of an African American father and son and the hopes and dreams to which they desperately cling. Powerful and poetic, Fences is a true American classic.

The Kansas City Repertory Theatre is one of the many artistic institutions in our community that rely on NEA funding. No matter what side of the aisle you're on, we hope you can agree that vibrant and flourishing artistic voices are vital to our city, state and country. Now, we need your voice: help us Save the NEA. The White House's proposed 2018 budget completely eliminates the NEA. If you've ever experienced the joy of live theatre, please contact your congressperson and ask them to support the NEA.
