Pre-Show Talk with Catherine Sheehy
Join CATHERINE SHEEHY, Chair of Dramaturgy and Dramatic Criticism at Yale School of Drama and Resident Dramaturg at Yale Repertory Theatre, for a pre-show chat and Q&A about MRS. CHRISTIE. Catherine is a celebrated speaker, and an avid Agatha fan, who will lead a discussion on the author’s career and Playwright Heidi Armbruster’s approach to writing a play about a playwright.
Dorset Theatre Festival’s PlayTalks Series features guest speakers who are experts in fields central to the themes or questions posed by each play. The speakers provide context and important background information that educates audience members about the relevance of the play in the world, enabling audience members to learn, reflect, discuss and ask questions in order to deepen their appreciation and understanding of the subsequent performance.
