KC’s LGBTQ+ short play showcase returns for the 5th year! Join us for 7 plays celebrating the diversity of the LGBTQ+ community!

After sold out houses in 2019, Whim Productions brings Kansas City’s LGBTQ+ short play showcase back for the 5th year with all new plays. Alphabet Soup is presented by Whim Productions with support from the Charlotte Street Foundation.

This year’s plays include an insider’s look at an AA meeting, a voyeuristic tale of Jock Night at a gay bar, and lesbians in a submarine searching for a Selkie to save the world! Featuring works by John Adams, Joel Barrett, Diane Hightower, Kraig Kensinger, Kevin King, Em Swenson, and Adam Yarbrough.

TICKETS: $15

VENUE: Capsule (1664 Broadway Blvd, Kansas City, MO 64108)

PLAYS: (Note: Some plays contain adult themes and partial nudity)

The Damp, Dark Room Just Off the Parlor by John Adams (he/him) – In Victorian England, a junior investigator with Scotland Yard investigates the disappearance of a missing wealthy couple. But danger looms from within the couple’s home — and within their troubled son.

Pink Baby. Blue Blanket. by Joel Barrett (he/him)- Our hero gets a blanket at birth and spends half a lifetime torn between the comfort and the restrictions it brings.

Operation: Find the Selkie by Diane Hightower (she/her) – The playwright who brought you lesbians in space now brings you lesbians in a submarine! In a not-too-distant future, Captain Morgan and Lieutenant Commander Elena Marie search for a Selkie who may hold the key to saving the planet and humankind.

Late Nite Interaction by Kraig Kensinger (he/him) – Strange bedfellows lead two men to navigate the insecurities of sexual desire.

What Happens at Jock Night by Kevin King (he/him)- On Jock Night at the bar, Rob just wants to enjoy the night, but his friends want to sell him stuff for their kids’ fundraisers. Meanwhile, Josh questions whether he’s overdressed.

Step Zero by Em Swenson (Em/Em) – An insider look at an AA meeting. Ryan walks into their first meeting and immediately questions whether they should join this quirky group.

All the Best Ones by Adam Yarbrough (he/him) – What’s the perfect recipe for a stressful formal dinner? Meeting your boyfriend’s mother and ex-wife.
