Penumbra Theatre Company’s Study Guide Library is meant to provide patrons with in-depth reading material on the plays we present during our main-stage season. Each guide includes a brief overview on the history of African American Theatre, a synopsis of the play, dramaturgical notes, contextual essays, critical thought on methodology, interviews with the playwrights and directors, statements and renderings from the creative design team, references for further research, and tools for teaching.
If you are a first-time study guide user, we ask you to complete a quick registration form about how you use our Study Guides using the link below. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Bellamy at firstname.lastname@example.org.
