P.S. is our new enrichment program which engages our community by providing a supplementary experience that relates to our productions and also provides context for further discussion beyond the stage. Unlike post-show talkbacks, which focus primarily on the production, P.S. events concentrate on learning more about the world surrounding the plays, and exploring ways to deepen our understanding of the work and how it resonates in our culture today.
P.S. events often include an interactive, performative, or media component, and last between one and one and a half hours, depending on the content. P.S. events are open to all patrons of the Lyric Stage. Tickets to the current show are not necessary. Reservations are recommended but not required.
To make a reservation, call 617-585-5678 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
