Dear Friend,

We’re pleased to announce that Drama(in the)works returns on Monday, August 30 at 7:30pm, with Past Midnight: A Visit with Larry and Viv by Donna Hoke. Summoned by Vivien Leigh's final companion, Jack Merivale, Sir Laurence Olivier rushes to the apartment where his one-time love has been recovering from a bout of tuberculosis. Viv hopes he's there for one last fling, but Larry needs something more. The play features two veterans of the New York stage, Maureen Silliman and William Parry. Parry was previously seen at PBD in the concert productions of Zorba! (title role) and 110 in the Shade.

You can also mark your calendar for Drama(in the)works readings on September 13 and October 11. Stay tuned for information on those plays in the weeks ahead. All three readings will be presented on Zoom. To reserve your free tickets for Past Midnight: A Visit with Larry and Viv, visit or call the box office at 561.514.4042, x2. 

Mark and Diane Perlberg are the executive producers of Drama(in the)works; Penny Bank and Roe Green/The Roe Green Foundation are the associate producers. PBDonline is sponsored by Louise and Barry Snyder.

We also want to remind you once again that you have until August 31 to retain the same subscription pricing/loyalty levels as the 2019-2020 season. Our Loyalty program is being discontinued, and beginning September 1, only one level of four-play and five-play subscription prices will be offered.

Finally, we are concluding our twentieth anniversary remembrances of things past with glimpses of the 2017-2018 season. It was an important year in PBD’s history, as it signaled a bit of a sea change. It was the first season in which world premieres became a central part of our mission, pointing the way to the future.
