ABOUT THE PLAY READING BOOK CLUB

The Play Reading Book Club (PRBC) offers participants opportunities to deepen and expand their experience as audience members through stimulating conversations about the literary, artistic and technical attributes of a play while meeting new people and broadening their cultural network. ArtsEmerson programs PRBC's throughout the season from October to May, where we read aloud and explore a play that is on stage at ArtsEmerson, and attend the show as a group. Sessions meet weekly, and are lead by professional Teaching Artists.
