The Kansas City Repertory Theatre offers the first of two free Library performances of the ripple, the wave that carried me home, a moving and powerful exploration of a family’s response to injustice and a daughter’s reckoning with her political inheritance. 


Part of the 2023 KC Rep for All community tour, the production follows the same script as seen on the Rep’s main stages – restaged and reimagined to be shown to audiences where they live. Written by Tony Award nominee Christina Anderson, a native of Kansas City, Kansas, and directed by Khanisha Foster, the play also is performed Wednesday, April 12, at the Library’s North-East Branch, 600 Wilson Blvd. 


The KC Rep for All community tour is supported by H&R Block; the Richard J. Stern Foundation for the Arts, Commerce Bank trustee; and the Copaken Family Fund. It is produced in partnership with the Missouri Humanities Council with support from the Missouri Humanities Trust Fund and the National Endowment for the Arts
