Clubs & Activities
The year is 1995, more than a quarter of a century after the assassinations of Medgar Evans, Malcolm X, and Martin Luther King Jr. Their widows – Myrlie Evers-Williams, Betty Shabazz, and Coretta Scott King – spend a weekend together, reflecting on their respective life journeys.
Kansas City theatre veteran Jacqee Gafford imagines the gathering in her original play Dark Was Their Journey. Commemorating Women’s History Month, she joins two other actors, Lynn King and Karen Cline Wright, in a staged reading of the contemplative piece. Another local theatre fixture, Frances Farah, directs.
Gafford is artistic director of Kansas City’s InPlay Theatre Company, for which she has worked as an actor, director, playwright, and administrator. Farah is the founder of the New Directions Theatre company.
