Prologues — Included Free with Your Ticket
One hour prior to every subscription series performance, a member of the cast leads a 30-minute discussion with a peek into the play-making process and other details to enhance your playgoing experience. Each Prologue concludes with a Q&A with the audience.
Context & Conversation
We program our plays in response to the world around us. The artists and administrators who bring each play to life spend a lot of time talking about what’s happening in our community and how it resonates with the themes in the production. We hope every piece we put on our stage is relevant to your everyday life and allows you to see your world in a new way.
In order to bring you into that dialogue, we will offer a conversation in the middle of the run of most shows in a location that relates to the themes of the play, outside of Trinity Rep. Conversationalist-in-Residence Christina Bevilacqua will lead a panel discussion about each show. Discussions are free and open to the public.
Closing Night Talk Back and Toast
The final performance has a special energy. It’s the last time the production will ever be seen, and the artists and audiences can start reflecting on the totality of the experience. Following the final performance of every show, we invite audiences who’ve come to the production at any point in the run to join the cast in a 20-minute post-show conversation and a toast to the show. What better way to celebrate a successful run and look forward to what’s next?
Because Closing Night occurs after the production, the times are dependent on each show’s running time. Please check the running time once the show has opened or call the box office for confirmation.
