Take your experience beyond the performance with one of our free public lectures.


THURSDAY talkbacks

Join our actors after each Thursday night performance for an engaging and interactive talkback session, where audiences supply questions for the actors to answer.


Renowned Shakespeare scholar and ASC Co-Founder and Director of Mission Ralph Alan Cohen provides his unique and cunning insight prior to the evening’s performance.  Ralph’s charm and good humor make this entertaining and enlightening lectures series a Blackfriars Playhouse favorite.

Inside Plays

Step onto the Blackfriars Playhouse stage to explore stagecraft and drama as if you are a member of Lord Chamberlain’s Men. In this interactive workshop, participants will discover why Shakespeare’s stagecraft is as revered as his wordcraft, while confronting the unique challenges raised by each production.
