Neighborhood Podcast Plays

The A.R.T. teams up with non-profit service organizations around Greater Boston to bring you the Neighborhood Podcast Play Series, original short works by local youth designed to enliven and creatively engage our beautiful public spaces.

You can listen to the plays on this website, but they were meant to be enjoyed outside! Download a set and take your MP3 player to the park or public space that inspired each play. Put your headphones in and watch the environment come alive.
