2019-2020 Season

A Few Good Men by Aaron Sorkin

November 11, 2019
KC Public Library – Plaza Branch

From the creator of The West Wing, the play that brought you “You can't handle the truth!” About loyalty, service, friendship, and honor, this play is being done for Veteran's Day and will have a very diverse cast!

A Child's Christmas in WalesA Child's Christmas In Wales by Dylan Thomas

December 8, 2019
KC Public Library – Plaza Branch

If this isn't already part of your holiday celebration, please make it so. Our third year presenting this beautiful piece, it will be followed by a celebration of our founder, Kip Niven.

The House of Blue LeavesThe House of Blue Leaves by John Guare

February 10, 2020
KC Public Library – Plaza Branch

What do you call a play that deals with the deepest of personal pain in a madcap and lunatic manner? This crazy play is about more than just the plight of Artie, Bunny, and Bananas - it is about the late 60's itself!

Saint JoanSaint Joan by George Bernard Shaw

March 16, 2020
KC Public Library – Plaza Branch

This masterpiece about Joan of Arc is often called “a tragedy without villains.” Shaw himself said it deals with “what normal men and women find that they must and will do in spite of their intentions.”

The Front PageThe Front Page by Ben Hecht and Charles MacArthur

June 1, 2020
KC Public Library – Plaza Branch

One of three plays Kip and I thought to open EARTh with, Front Page is often considered the pinnacle of American comedy. Crude, fast-paced, and sprawling, it is an ode to a bygone era... and newspapers themselves!

EARTh presents its projects under the auspices of the Actors’ Equity Association’s Stage Reading Guidelines, as supervised by the Kansas City Area Equity Liaison Committee, Sarah LaBarr, President.
Admission is free and seating is first-come, first served.
