At Unicorn Theatre you can be a part of the next great play. Throughout the year we offer readings of exciting new scripts that have never been produced before. Talk Backs after each reading give audiences a chance to ask the playwright questions and discuss these in-progress manuscripts. Plays in our reading series often go on to receive full productions. Free and open to the public. Donations requested at the door.

Mustard Seeds

Directed by Shon Ruffin

On the banks of the Missouri River, a group of researchers gather at a former site of the Underground Railroad where slaves fought for their lives and swam for freedom. Under a full moon, old friends and colleagues are at each other’s throats as they struggle to reconcile their past. Nearby…spirits watch, as spirits do…trying to make sense of these mortals and decide what to do with them.
