Stay after the performance for a spirited exchange focused on the play’s ideas and process of creation. What was the playwright's intent? What choices did the director make in bringing the story to life? What ideas did the actors bring to the table? What are you feeling and thinking about the play now that it’s over? A member of Aurora’s artistic team facilitates this 20-minute discussion. Free.
