Today in the U.S.A.: live?

A generation of U.S. children have grown up with active shooter drills, repeated horrifying news stories of shooters in schools, sympathy for the victims, and literal and figurative scars. What lingers in the individual and collective consciousness of a generation who grow up in an environment where children feel like targets? Come on a journey, heartfelt, irreverent, hopeful, and frustrating, exploring a new generation’s view of the country they inhabit. Warning: Irreverence, Satire, Hope and Change are all mixed up in this view of "Today in the U.S.A: live?"

Original work created by Washburn University students,

This is the show our students will perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in August 2021.

Admission: Free will donation to send students to perform at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


Earlier this season:

She Kills Monsters

September 18, 19, 24 & 25 at 7:30 p.m.
September 20 at 2 p.m.

A comedic romp into the world of fantasy role-playing games, She Kills Monsters tells the story of Agnes Evans as she leaves her childhood home in Ohio following the death of her teenage sister, Tilly. When Agnes finds Tilly’s Dungeons & Dragons notebook, however, she stumbles into a journey of discovery and action-packed adventure in the imaginary world that was Tilly’s refuge. In this high-octane dramatic comedy laden with homicidal fairies, nasty ogres, and 90s pop culture, acclaimed young playwright Qui Nguyen offers a heart-pounding homage to the geek and warrior within us all.

Admission: Free will donation to send students to perform at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
