BTM XVII Schedule of Plays





Here is the running order, hour by hour, of plays in next Sunday’s (May 10) Boston Theater Marathon XVII. Make a day of it, bring your Mom, drop by for a few hours—whatever strikes your fancy. Your all-day pass ($25 in advance; $35 the day of the event) allows you to come and go as you please. As always, net proceeds from ticket sales to the BTM benefit the Theatre Community Benevolent Fund, which provides financial support to theatres and theatre artists in times of need. See you there!
