The holiday favorite All is Calm: The Christmas Truce of 1914 will return to the Mustard Seed Theatre stage in the company’s 12th Season. Continuing to uphold its mission to produce high quality professional plays that explore themes of faith and social justice, Mustard Seed will open the season with a “mature-audiences only” production of The Last Days of Judas Iscariot by Stephen Adly Guirgis, followed by the family friendly All is Calm. The Spring will feature two dark comedies: Well, by Lisa Kron and Death Tax by Lucas Hnath.

Mustard Seed Theatre also announces it will be the first professional theatre in St. Louis to offer Hearing Loop Technology to its patrons who are hard of hearing. The assistive listening technology will allow patrons with varying audio deficiencies to better hear the productions. Generously sponsored by the Fontbonne Community Connection and Loop the Lou, patrons now have even more accessible ways to enjoy theatre at Fontbonne University’s Black Box Theatre.
