The INsiders is an interactive club for the theatre’s literary-minded patrons. The INsiders aims to engage its members by creating a forum for ideas informed by and inspired by the season’s diverse offering of plays.
Insiders come together on select Wednesday evenings for lively discussions revolving around each of the season’s plays. Enjoy refreshments and meet new friends as guest scholars offer a fresh perspective on these timeless works. Membership includes a copy of the playscript.
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
These additional workshops provide an avenue to travel deeper into the heart of each play.
All meetings occur on Wednesdays from 7 – 9pm at A Noise Within theatre
