Undermain Theatre is currently in its “Season of the Myth,” and will be taking over the Dallas Museum of Art (1717 N. Harwood St.) for a one-off afternoon reading of The Conference of the Birds. The Persian poem, originally penned by Farid ud-Din Attar, follows a flock of birds as they search for a king to bring peace and unity to their nation. It was turned into a stage play in 1979, and has seen several iterations since then, but Undermain is one of Dallas’ treasures, and this reading should get you inspired for their April production of August Strindberg’s The Ghost Sonata. The reading starts at 2 p.m. Sunday. Call 214-922-1200 or visit dma.org to purchase tickets.
