Bees Knees Production invites Kansas City to the premiere of  “Sisters” the weekend of Sept. 30, at the Just Off Broadway Theatre, 3051 Central St, KCMO.

In the play, four estranged sisters each have their own reasons for not being “family” when family is needed. With the passing of their mother, the sisters have to  talk, put fighting aside and work together like their mother would have wished, all while trying to overcome things from their past.

Although the play is drama-based, viewers can expect to both laugh and cry throughout the production.

Patricia Mitchell, owner of Bees Knees Production, the playwright, director and producer said she wrote the play to remind individuals who are experiencing family dynamics that they are not alone and there is hope.

No, this play is not a Tyler Perry clone. Mitchell said viewers can expect a play that is real, raw, and without sugar coating.

“The vision that I’m given is to create scenes in productions that show real life and that are raw to the core, so that the people who are watching the show can relate and know that it’s authentic and credible,”  Mitchell said. “I really, really hope that my productions will strike something in them to help them continue to press forward.”

Music for the play is written by Ja’Ron Nichols, a Kansas City singer and songwriter. Due to sensitive material, attendance is advised for viewers ages 13 and up. 

The play runs two and half hours, including an intermission and an opening act by Carrington Lopez, a local comic who will deliver some clean and Christian comedy.

The play is scheduled for Fri. Sept. 30 and Sat. Oct. 1 at 7 p.m. and Sun. Oct. 2 at 4 p.m. Online ticket purchases are limited to five tickets per order.
