Interactive, intimate, and intensely engaging. The INsiders is a unique club for our most literary-minded patrons: the perfect way to exchange ideas on our plays while—yes!—supporting our theatre at the same time.
INsiders come together on select Tuesday evenings for lively discussions revolving around each of the season’s plays. You’ll enjoy refreshments and meet new friends as guest scholars offer fresh perspectives on the season’s plays. Membership includes a copy of the play script to read and review!
Participate in two exciting, specialized workshops throughout the season! INsiders might…
- Walk through the Designer Process
- Examine a Playwright’s Past
- Explore the realms of World Drama
Travel deeper into the heart of each play with like-minded literature lovers in a comfortable, convivial setting.
All meetings occur on Tuesdays from 7 – 9pm at A Noise Within theatre
