We. Are. Here. -- Still here, but new venue!
KCA Fire forces change of location and opening date for LFL production

For Immediate Release – Louisville, KY 
 
Looking for Lilith announces that We. Are. Here. will be presented at the Black Box Theater, Wyatt Center for the Arts at Bellarmine University, and the opening performance will be moved from Friday, June 15th to Monday, June 18th at 7:30pm.
 
The move was prompted after the June 13th fire at The Kentucky Center, where LFL was scheduled to perform We. Are Here. at the MeX Theater. Upon learning that The Kentucky Center would be closed until at least June 25th, LFL began seeking an alternate venue.
 
LFL is grateful to all Kentucky Center staff who have been supportive and helpful in negotiating how the production could continue. The Bellarmine University Theatre Program, where LFL has performed before (As It Is In Heaven, Orlando), has been equally supportive and generous in helping LFL to continue its production, and LFL is profoundly grateful for their generosity and flexibility in accommodating We. Are Here.. 

Through the eyes of 4 families living 4 different but overlapping realities, We. Are Here. explores the current political, social, and economic turmoil of our country. Issues of immigration, education, white privilege, institutional racism, gun control, and more are brought into focus in hopes of bridging our differences. Discover who's here for a limited engagement!

Performances will be June 18, 22, at 7:30pm, June 23 at 2:00pm and 7:30pm, and June 24 at 5:30pm,  2018. Ticket prices are $20 for general admission, $15 for students/seniors/military. A Group Rate of $12 per person is available for groups of 10 or more with reservations required. Note that our $10 ticket Community performance is moving to Sunday, June 24, 5:30pm.

Join us for a Talk-Back on Saturday, June 23 following the evening performance to engage in a conversation with local panelists about "How To Be An Ally". 
 
Tickets may be purchased at the door or online at lookingforlilith.org/2017-2018/wearehere. Audience members who have already purchased tickets via The Kentucky Center Box Office will receive notification of a refund, and are encouraged to re-purchase their tickets as detailed above.
