Legacy Land

Mar 7 - Apr 5 at Copaken Stage

Legacy Land, an honorable mention on the 2019 Kilroys List, is an unflinching dark comedic dive into the bizarre legacy that sexual abuse imprints upon the lives of sisters Barbara and Denise. Denise’s unexpected Thanksgiving homecoming upends Barbara and her young lover Marcus’s plans for a cozy weekend. When Denise’s domineering boyfriend Freddie reveals the true reason for the visit, a battle ensues unearthing years of resentment and repressed memories forcing the sisters to choose whether they will succumb to, or overcome their family legacy.

Images in Legacy Land were generously provided by Adreinne Waheed and the Waheed Photo Archive, a collection of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture. Adreinne founded the archive in 2010 and it was acquired by the NAAMHC in 2015. These vernacular photographs serve as a collective visual history of African American life and remind us of the loved ones we hold so dear.

You may find out more about Adreinne and the Waheed Photo Archive on Instagram: @waheedphotoarchive, @waheedpix, on Facebook: WaheedPhotoArchive, and by visiting www.adreinnewaheed.com
We also encourage you to check out her new book, Black Joy and Resistance available on Amazon or visit its Facebook page: BlackJoyandResistance or the website: www.blackjoyandresistance.com.

 


 

The health and safety of our patrons, staff and artists has been and always will be of the utmost concern at KCRep.  We have been closely monitoring the regional response to the evolving situation with COVID-19 and find ourselves at a critical moment in our history.

With this comes the difficult task of announcing that our opening ofLegacy Land by Stacey Rose currently scheduled for Saturday, March 14that 8pm has been cancelled as well as its scheduled run.

We will be able to process refunds for ticket holders of Legacy Land however, we would like our audience members and subscribers with tickets to consider converting their purchase to a donation to our organization. With so many unknowns about the lasting effects of this pandemic, these sorts of efforts will bolster KCRep and our potential to continue sharing enchanting and entertaining stories with you in the future. Please call our box office at 816-235-2700 with any questions.

We are also cancelling Frankenstein: A Ghost Story by Kyle Hatley as well as its scheduled run.

We are deeply saddened we will not be able to share their incredible work with all of you, our KCRep family. We truly appreciate playwrights Kyle Hatley and Stacey Rose, directors Joanie Schultz and Logan Vaughn and their amazing and inspiring teams of actors and designers.

In regards to our upcoming production of Noises Off!, we continue to monitor the situation and will keep you informed on any adjustments to its current schedule.
