Play Discussion Club

Join us for our SpeakEasy Play Discussion Club, a weekly discussion surrounding some of today’s most exciting scripts! Participation is free, but you may need to purchase some of the scripts. Sign up for as many sessions as you’d like, read the play on your own time, and then join SpeakEasy staff and artists for an online conversation about the play’s major themes and impact on the American theatre canon.
