The Absentee

A deeply moving space tale about queer love, finding the hope to overcome grief, and intergalactic absentee voting, The Absentee by Julia Doolittle hits the MainStage starting September 13 at the Know.

Directed by guest director Kate Bergstrom, “The Absentee” challenges traditional notions of love, lays bare the effects of isolationism, and reminds us of the duty we owe one another.

The Operator, who can’t share her full name due to space force code, has fled earth, her girlfriend, and her troubles, in pursuit of a shut-off life in the stars. But she isn’t fully cut off⁠—she prides herself on being able to know all of the regular ships and pilots who charter through her section.

ADMISSION INFO

At Know Theatre, it’s important to us to keep all of our shows affordable for all, while making it possible for artists to earn a living in Cincinnati.

We offer a range of ticket prices that allow each audience member to choose a price that works for you.  This way, we can keep theatre accessible to everyone who wants to see a show and still bring in revenue that allows us to make innovative new works while striving to pay a living wage.

We’re a 99 seat theatre with general admission seating, with no seat more than 20 feet from the playing space.

Our lobby bar opens one hour before show time. We hope you’ll come hang out with us pre-show.

We open the doors to the theatre about ten minutes before curtain.

Here’s the breakdown of our ticket prices

Living Wage Tickets: $35

If you’re able to pay a little more for a ticket, you help our artists survive AND keep the Know accessible to all.

Mainstage Tickets: $25

Our regular low priced ticket!

Rush Tickets: $15

Arrive an hour before show time to get on our waiting list. If there’s a seat available 10 minutes before the show starts, we’ll sell you a ticket for $15. Just promise us that if you like the show, you’ll tell fifteen friends.

Welcome Experiment Advance Tickets: $10

At Wednesday night MainStage performances, we’ve got tickets available in advance for just $10.

Welcome Experiment Walkup Tickets: $0 (or pay what you wish)

For Wednesday night MainStage performances, half of the seats are reserved for walkup customers, with tickets available at no cost.

SecondStage $15

Sometimes we do shows outside of our MainStage programming, usually on the cabaret stage in our bar, the Underground, but sometimes in other locations. Get tickets to those events for $15.

Multi-ticket plans for our dedicated fans

6 ticket Flex-pass: $110

For the frugally minded who want to plan ahead: you can get a flex pass that allows you to reserve seats for performances at the low-low price of $18.33 a ticket. Such a deal!

Membership: $250/year

It’s one reserved ticket to every MainStage and SecondStage show, and unlimited walkups to any subsequent performances. If you’re at the Know all the time, this is your best deal.

Exchange/Refund Policy

While we do our best to accommodate ticket exchanges (We understand! Life happens!) we cannot guarantee any exchanges and we are unable to offer refunds on tickets sold.
