2020-2021 OFFSCRIPT EVENTS
Tuesdays with Morrie: February 18, 2021, Offscript discussion at 6:00 PM
Join Offscript: IRT Young Professionals Group, in partnership with The Exchange at the Indianapolis Urban League and WFYI Nerds, for our free virtual member event on February 18 at 6 PM! Tuesdays with Morrie is a life-affirming play that celebrates mentorship and friendship as a single visit between Mitch and Morrie turns into a life-changing weekly pilgrimage. Purchase a virtual ticket for this production and watch from the comfort of your home prior to the event. During our event, members will hear from partners of the event as well as Associate Artistic Director Benjamin Hanna. Benjamin will talk about the reimagined virtual season and share his experience with directing Tuesdays with Morrie. Members and partners are encouraged to invite their mentors and mentees to the conversation.
“If you are lucky, you know and love a Morrie. Your life-teachers may not come to mind immediately. Perhaps, like Mitch, your pursuit of progress has relegated them to the recesses of your memory. But they are there, somewhere, waiting to recount their pearls of wisdom and sage advice....I hope that Tuesdays with Morrie inspires you to remembering the words of your Morrie, whoever and wherever they may be, and that you live joyfully in our New Year.” –Benjamin Hanna, IRT Associate Artistic Director and Director of Tuesdays with Morrie
This Wonderful Life: December 15, 2020, Offscript discussion at 7:00 PM
Join Offscript: IRT Young Professionals Group for our first virtual member event of the season on December 15 at 7 PM! This Wonderful Life is a hilarious and heartwarming holiday story of community, goodness, love and connection. Purchase tickets for this production and watch from the comfort of your home prior to the event. During our event, members will hear from Associate Artistic Director Benjamin Hanna. Benjamin will talk about the reimagined virtual season and share his experience with directing This Wonderful Life.
"We selected This Wonderful Life for a variety of reasons: we very much wanted to find a holiday piece that would gather people virtually, if not physically, around the idea of the best of American traditions–rediscovered community, reigniting individual purpose, and reinventing the essence of family celebrations. For many American families, the shared viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, or its 100-year antecedent, A Christmas Carol, IS the meaning of the winter holidays." –Janet Allen, Margot Lacy Eccles Artistic Director
