SpeakEasy Stage Announces 2021-22 Season
After a long 18-month intermission, SpeakEasy Stage Company will proudly re-open its doors on Friday, September 24, 2021, for the start of its 31st Season.
And to mark its return, the company has announced a bold line-up of Boston premieres that includes the riveting Broadway drama The Sound Inside; the raucous Off-Broadway comedy BLKS; a mesmerizing journey into addiction and identity, People, Places & Things; the beloved musical fable Once on This Island, and the sweeping two-part epic The Inheritance.
“We are thrilled to be back” said SpeakEasy Producing Artistic Director Paul Daigneault. “After a year and a half of Zoom calls and social distancing, the importance of human connection and the healing power of the arts have never been clearer.” “At the same time,” Daigneault added, “I want to affirm that the safety of our patrons, artists, and staff is and will remain our primary concern for as long as the Covid-19 pandemic is a concern. We promise to keep our community informed every step of the way to ensure their safe return to our theatre, and will continuously amend our protocols to fit the latest guidance from government and health officials.”
