MURDER FOR TWO – 6/11 and 6/25

American Playwrights in Context (APIC) and American Theatre in Context (ATIC)

This season, in honor of our 40th anniversary, we have expanded this speaker series to include a greater variety of panels featuring a range of different theatre artists. Like the onstage interviews with our season playwrights in our APIC series, these post-show events, ATIC, allow audiences to meet and learn about directors, designers, and other theater-makers!. Our past APIC series writers have included Edward Albee, Lynn Nottage, Bruce Graham, Anna Deavere Smith, Terrence McNally, composer John Kander, director/choreographer Susan Stroman, Neil LaBute, Theresa Rebeck, Amy Herzog, and Christopher Durang, among others.

Murder for Two: Saturday, June 20 (after the 2pm performance) Join us for an on-stage conversation with creators, Joe Kinosian and Kellen Blair.


Join a member of PTC’s staff for a post-matinee backstage tour of the set. Learn how the set was conceived and built, and how the crew runs the show!


Every season, we schedule panel talks with thought-leaders who expand and discuss the ideas and issues raised by each mainstage production. Catch the onstage conversation immediately following the 6:30pm performance!
