In conjunction with the Midwest Dramatists Center, the Nelson-Atkins
presents a staged reading of “Mustard Seeds,” the newest
play-in-progress by Kansas City Playwright, Michelle Tyrene Johnson. Set
in the contemporary world, “Mustard Seeds” unfolds when modern-day
researchers camping out on the bank of the Missouri River encounter the
unborn souls who did not make it to the Wyandotte County, Kansas stop of
the Underground Railroad. A Q&A with Johnson follows.
The regular free reading of the Midwest Dramatists Center will have a change of date and place
in February as part of a special presentation. The reading will take place in the Atkins Auditorium of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art,
4525 Oak Street, on Friday, February 9, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. with doors opening at 6:00. Although the reading is free, Nelson still suggests getting a ticket for the event
While parking at Nelson on the street is free, there is indoor parking at a cost.
