Please consider making a philanthropic gift to SpeakEasy Stage. Your donation will help us build and strengthen our community for the next 30 years.
Thanks to exciting and contemporary source material and talented local artists, SpeakEasy shows spark conversations that continue long after audiences leave the theater. But producing high-quality theatre that connects and inspires the community is only one facet of the work we do at SpeakEasy. Our ability to cultivate emerging artists, reduce barriers to attendance and work toward achieving cultural equity all depends on contributions from people like you. With your support, SpeakEasy Stage can continue to be the South End’s premiere artistic and cultural destination.
SpeakEasy Stage is thrilled for our 32nd season, which features some of the finest contemporary plays and musicals from around the country: Heroes of the Fourth Turning; English; Fairview; Wild Goose Dreams; and the Prom.
SpeakEasy Stage partners with local schools and advocacy groups to provide carefully curated student matinees at a discounted or zero-cost rate. Collaborating with teachers, we also offer curriculum packets and post-show discussions that challenge students to think critically about their experiences.
At SpeakEasy Stage, we believe everyone deserves the opportunity to feel the power of live theatre and that means offering the greatest access possible to our programs. Last season, we provided over 1,000 underwritten and discounted tickets to more than two dozen community organizations, schools and youth groups and we remain committed to adding accessibility services for patrons with disabilities.
In recognition of Thomas Derrah’s eternal dedication to teaching and the inspiration he provided to hundreds of students and young artists every day, SpeakEasy Stage Company has created The Thomas Derrah Emerging Artists Fund.
At SpeakEasy Stage, we pride ourselves on providing an inclusive, accessible environment, welcoming everyone who wants to partake in our art, while treating all involved with respect.
