As part of the A.R.T.'s commitment to education, many productions are accompanied by Talkbacks, free post-show discussions held with members of the A.R.T. artistic staff and cast. Talkbacks are generally held after Saturday and Wednesday matinees.
The A.R.T. also collaborates with Harvard University and other academic centers on specialized lecture series, in which audiences join a moderated discussion between artists and local scholars on an array of topics inspired by A.R.T. productions.
Both Talkbacks and Discussion Series are free and open to the public.
A full schedule of accompanying Talkbacks and Discussion Series can be found on each production's main page.
