Kansas City Public Theatre (KCPublic) has announced the March edition of First Mondays at the Arts Bar.
Every first Monday of the month at Uptown Arts Bar, KCPublic presents staged readings of plays by Kansas City area playwrights and other work which reflects the unique history and concerns of the Kansas City community.
March will feature HER OWN DEVICES by Lindsay Adams, directed by founder Elizabeth Bettendorf Bowman.
From the press release: “Madeleine, a young girl born with a mysterious and powerful autoimmune disorder, has spent her entire life in a lab as a test subject, but her doctors are still no closer to finding a cure. Meanwhile every night the King of Germs visits her in her dreams and tries to touch her with his contaminating hand. She enlists the help of her imaginary friend the Robot to fight him off and soon must make a choice whether to leave the only home she’s ever known. “Her Own Devices” is a world of robots and nightmares, lab coats and Samba dances that explore the power of imagination in a young girl who refuses to be defined by her disability.”
First Monday at the Uptown Arts Bar’s HER OWN DEVICES runs March 5th at 3611 Broadway, Kansas City, Missouri 64111. The staged reading is free and open to the public. For more information visit kcpublictheatre.org.
