WHIM PRODUCTIONS is very pleased to announce that we are producing the Kansas City edition of AFTER ORLANDO, an evening of short plays reflecting on life since the Pulse Nightclub shooting. Join us December 4th or 5th at The Fishtank Performance Studio for this collection of lyrical, haunting, inspirational, and unsettling plays. Now, more than ever, we need to come together in reflection and unity. Post-election, these plays have even more power.

AFTER ORLANDO is an international playwright-driven theatre action including playwrights from the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, Africa and Australia. The plays were curated by Missing Bolts Productions Inc. and NoPassport Theatre Alliance and Press. They were specifically written in response to the tragic event and are being read at over 40 venues across the country and in the UK throughout the fall. AFTER ORLANDO is a playwright-driven work. To help audiences focus on the messages, the plays will be presented as true staged readings, with actors performing the pieces behind music stands.

Whim Productions has selected plays from the collection and curated submissions from Kansas City playwrights.
