2012 Symposium featuring WCP associate artistic director David Kennedy and The Year of Magical Thinking author Joan Didion. Photo: Leslie Datsis.

Following the first Sunday matinee performance of each production, special guests take the stage to help place the production in context with illuminating insights about the world of the play.  The Playhouse hosts a wide range of guests, from noted playwrights to academic scholars, for discussions that provide an excellent opportunity to delve into the world of the play.

Each discussion is followed by an interactive dialogue with the audience.

All Symposium events are free and open to the public and will begin immediately following the 3pm performance.
