Boston Playwrights’ Theatre
Home of New Plays in Boston
BPT's 2020-21 season of new plays—thesis plays by our cohort of third-year playwrights—has been postponed until next year due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. In the meantime, all five plays are currently being workshopped in collaboration with our friends at BU's College of Fine Arts School of Theatre. A series of conversations about these plays, BPT Talks, will be held this fall via the videoconferencing tool Zoom.
Beginning Oct. 20, BPT Talks will convene on Zoom each Tuesday evening at 7:30 p.m. (with the exception of Election Day, Nov. 3) until Nov. 24. Audiences will be treated to conversations with each play’s workshop team—a look “behind the curtain” at new plays in various stages of the development process. It is expected that each installment of the BPT Talks series will be unique, with some including short excerpts of the play being discussed. Each conversation will include the virtual audience as well, with an online Q&A.
Wherever you are, via Zoom! (You will need to download the Zoom app to participate.) The event is FREE—click the "Purchase Tickets" button below to join.
