Sunday Symposium
Hear a panel of experts and artists discuss ideas related to the play and its themes, moderated by a member of Long Wharf Theatre’s artistic staff, following the third Sunday matinee of each production.
Backstage with Gordon
Join Long Wharf Theatre’s Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein before the performance as he discusses the creative process with directors, designers, and playwrights prior to Thursday previews, beginning at 7 p.m.
Partnership with the New Haven Free Public Library (NHFPL)
This partnership shares each organization’s resources in order to spark courageous conversations through the New Haven community.  For all six of Long Wharf’s productions the NHFPL will create a micro-branch in our lobby, allowing anyone with a Connecticut library card to borrow from a selection of books related to the themes of the plays while at the Theatre.  Long Wharf and the NHFPL will also jointly produce and present community conversations in Long Wharf’s two theatres and at the Library’s five city-wide branches that are inspired by the plays’ themes and led by civic leaders with particular expertise in the subjects.  This program is free of charge.
