I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard

April 19 – May 14, 2017


By Halley Feiffer

Directed by Jeff Church


Ella is an up-and-coming actress who wants nothing more than to make her famous playwright father proud. Over the course of a boozy, drug-fueled evening, things begin to unravel when they read the reviews of her Off-Broadway debut. This probing and darkly funny play sheds new light on the fight to overcome a parent’s legacy, starring Kansas City favorites Theodore Swetz (“Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo”) and Dina Thomas (“Bad Jews”).


I'm Gonna Pray For You So Hard was developed during a residency at the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center's National Playwrights Conference in 2014.
