The Hindu and the Cowboy
The Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre and Festival of Faiths of Kansas City present The Hindu and the Cowboy, a one-act play inspired by the stories of Kansas City residents, on Sunday, November 7, 2010, at 2 p.m. at the Plaza Branch, 4801 Main St.
An encore performance takes place on Monday, November 8, at 7 p.m. at the Plaza Branch.
Among the stories are those of a young Muslim and his surprise encounter with New York City fire fighters after 9/11, an African-American pastor and the enslaved grandmother he will never forget, and the Hindu and the cowboy who came face to face over the fate of land.
The idea for the play was sparked by the Mosaic Life Stories Project, undertaken in 2002 by a group of volunteers seeking to foster interfaith encounters and promote the power of stories. The project encouraged people to share stories that have affected them in a visceral way.
Admission is free. Click here or call 816.701.3407 to RSVP.
A reception hosted by Saint Andrew Christian Church follows each performance. After the reception, the Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre will present a preview of new stories.
