Long Wharf Theatre’s Sunday Symposium series is a hidden gem in its feedback programming series, which includes conversations with the cast, nightly talkbacks, and an intimate sit down with Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein.
The Sunday Symposium series, which take places generally after the third Sunday matinee performance during the run of each show, features speakers offering interesting perspectives on the work found on our stages. Some past speakers included Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Donald Margulies, Tappan Wilder, literary executor of Thornton Wilder’s estate, and Barry Nalebuff, one of the founders of Honest Tea and a Yale professor.“Our overall goal is to offer an enriched experience of the show,” said Literary Manager Elizabeth Nearing. “We hope to offer a deep, scholarly perspective on the piece. We want to use the platform of the show to discuss larger themes.”
The Sunday Symposium series is free and open to the public. Click here to view past Symposiums, show trailers, and other interesting videos.
