Upcoming Bicentennial Events

Nov. 1-2: "To Know You" Play
Who was Susan Wiley Walker? That’s what Nashville playwright Mary Donnet Johnson aimed to find out when she embarked on a journey of discovery that culminated in her play, “To Know You,” which will be performed Nov. 1 at 7 p.m. and Nov. 2 at 3 p.m. at the Clayton Center for the Arts. The play about Walker (MC benefactor and architect/first resident of the home now known as RT Lodge) is one of MC’s bicentennial events. The performances are free and open to the public, but a printed ticket is required for admission. For tickets, call the Clayton Center Box Office at 865.981.8590. Read more about the play on the MC website.
