Melting Pot reopens with Lewis Morrow play


Posted by Bob Evans

KC Melting Pot returns with original work by Lewis Morrow, “Baybra’s Tulips.”

Baybra’s Tulips is a compelling family drama that pivots around Baybra, an African American man returning home after a 10-year stint in prison to live with his sister, Tellulah, and her born-again Christian husband Charles. Estranged from his daughter who was an infant when he was sentenced, Baybra struggles to reconnect with the world that seemingly left him behind. Faced with the reality of his present and the secrets of his sister’s past, Baybra reaches a crossroads where vengeance and the desire to build a new life crash head-on into the fate of the family.
