The Stories of Fiddler on the Roof

Outside Mullingar Play Club

Play Club extends a successful Forward Theater Co. program into the library world.  Through Play Club, participants receive a copy of FTC's current play to read, after which participants engage in discussion, which includes watching live scene work of the play by actors working with a director.  Participants will have the opportunity to engage in conversation with one another and the performers to reach a greater understanding of the play, its issues and struggles, and how a piece is brought from a written work to life.
