The Living Room prepares limited run



Limited seating – 8 performances ONLY!

Down in Mississippi

by Carlyle Brown
April 27th – May 6th @ The Pearl

The Living Room is proud to team up with Kokopelli Theatre and the William Inge Foundation to present a limited run of Carlyle Brown’s Down in Mississippi, April 27th – May 6th in Kansas City.

Down in Mississippi – which playwright Carlyle Brown describes as a “Gospel Play with Music” – takes place during the Freedom Summer campaign to register African-Americans to vote in the dangerous, segregated world of Mississippi in 1964. It explores the transformative experiences of three young civil rights activists who leave their safe northern homes in an attempt to change the world; only to discover they must first change themselves. This honest and insightful piece is a celebration of a movement that gave birth to the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Powerful musical vignettes help tell this ever-relevant tale of oppression, rage, determination, and the fight for hope.
