About this event

THE PRICE OF BAIL - Crescendo Awardee - Written by Olivia Hill

How much would you sacrifice to save the family that destroyed you?

Price of Bail is a family drama about survival, truth, and sisterhood. Join three sisters as they navigate history and trauma with humor, rage, and the help of the ancestors--only to find their collective power on the other side.

*This play addresses sexual violence and may cause emotional distress, also contains strong language.*

Black Man, MO - Crescendo Awardee - Written by Terrace Wyatt Jr

Living Black in KCMO is something, especially when it comes to family. Mitchell Kray Francis was murdered by a cop which leads to a sit down between his mother, Diane and Officer Joseph. Hearing the most personal conversation between the two, there comes a point in time when tragedy like this is expressed not just from BLM supporters, or the black community...but from a mother.
