Although we are NOT on a real train, all the plays have a train setting, within a background of Kansas City history. Performances are held in some of your favorite area restaurants.




The Mystery Train has been sidetracked while we look for a new home depot, but we promise to update you on the details as soon as we can. We are planning a fall and winter show, so stay tuned!

In the meantime, our parent company, Thespiation, has always wanted to produce a Fringe Festival Show in Kansas City and it's finally happening this summer. "Striking Beauty" is not a mystery, has nothing to do with trains and there is no dinner involved, but it is a comedy and a really fun show written by Wendy Thompson, the creator of The Mystery Train.

Striking Beauty

An idealistic artist calls for an artists' strike and rallies the creative community to battle unscrupulous and unethical authorities. The resulting Tweet storm surprises even him!  With his moral compass spinning wildly, he and his family land in jail, First Fridays disintegrate and the entire world is painted gray. He thought he could stick it to the Man, but it is very hard to negotiate with a metaphor. Will beauty ever surface again?
