home The Orphan's Feast

"This holiday season, keep a song on your lips, your friends by your side, and a baseball bat in your backpack." It's December 24, 1940 in London, England. A young couple listens to the broadcast from the local dance hall while they discuss the family they're just starting. The announcer interrupts the music - Hitler's bombers are on the way. And so, with the wailing of sirens, begins The Monocle's debut original production, "The Orphans Feast." Inspired by the holiday dinners shared by friends separated from their families by circumstances or choice, "The Orphans Feast" follows a cast of characters as they pursue the meaning of family through the past, future, and present. Love, loss, psychotic breaks, songs, laughter, and manslaughter promise to make this a holiday production you won't soon forget. Featuring original tunes and new takes on holiday classics, performed live on stage at The Arts Asylum, in downtown Kansas City, MO. 11/30 - 8:00 pm 12/1 - 2:00 pm & 8:00pm 12/2 - 2:00 pm "The Orphans Feast" was written and composed by Christian Hankel with Nathan Granner.
