THE BOSTON PROJECT: Project Resilience

THE BOSTON PROJECT: Project Resilience

May 3, 2021

We Bostonians have always been known for our strong and stalwart nature, but this past year has presented challenges that have tested even the toughest among us. To celebrate the distinct and enduring spirit of this great city, SpeakEasy is commissioning six Boston playwrights to each write a brand-new, site-specific, ten-minute play that celebrates the resilience that sees us through each day.

This production is sponsored in part by Berkshire Bank and the Boston Cultural Council.
