The Lillian Hellman Festival

Join us as we celebrate Lillian Hellman, a giant of the American theater, throughout the 2016/17 Season. Sponsored by Beth Newburger Schwartz, Festival events include our productions of The Little Foxes and Watch on the Rhine, as well as presentations of readings, panel discussions, a community-wide reading, and more.

American Voices workshops and readings

Throughout the season, the Artistic Development department facilitates workshops and readings of plays in our commissioning or production pipeline. Many of these workshops are private or for invited audiences per our agreements with the unions and the artists. Our general audiences benefit from the work achieved in these workshops and readings in subsequent seasons. For example, subscribers and single ticket buyers will benefit from the earlier developmental workshops for Intelligence when that play lands on our stage February 24 – April 2, 2017. The American Voices workshops and readings are a critical component Arena Stage’s behind-the-scenes research and development process.
