Special Performance 1:30pm


Honor the spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Day at our annual free admission day.  Join us at 1:30 for a special musical presentation followed by the premier of Conversation After a Funeral, a new one-act play by Cleveland playwright and poet Dr. Mary Weems.  Guided tours will be available throughout the day.


Two of history’s most powerful and moving stories converge in Dr. Mary Weems’ stirring new play Conversation After a Funeral when Anne Frank and Emmett Till meet in the afterlife just moments after Emmett’s funeral. Awarded Best New Play 2012 by The African American Playwrights Exchange (AAPEX), the play is making its Cleveland debut at the Maltz Museum.
