Community Conversations

Community Conversations is a pilot program that aims to foster reflection, conversation, and connection, striving to deepen audience members experience with the play and to each other. This format is intended to create space for audience members to share their experience, building a sense of mutual understanding and therefore, a stronger Roundabout community.

Community Conversations are free, open to all, and last 20 minutes.



Other Theatre Plus Activities

Periodically, Roundabout hosts ancillary events with thematic relevance to a particular production, such as complimentary post-show talkbacks with special guests.

After Words

A member of Roundabout's artistic team will lead a 20-30 minute panel discussion that explores in depth an element of the production's dramaturgy and creative process with relevant artists and creatives.

Audience Reflections

Join us post-show for a special discussion about the production. Led by a facilitator from Roundabout, you’ll have a chance to hear from your fellow audience members. Share your point of view, learn about a new perspective, and celebrate the powerful shared experience of live theatre. Audience Reflections are free and open to all who attend the performance.
