*Open Rehearsals are ticketed events that provide an inside look into The Commissary’s process of rehearsing and creating LESSONS IN SURVIVAL. Each week, a group of actors and director Tyler Thomas will explore material not seen in other episodes, working on it and talking candidly about the content and the process.

**Community Conversations are free and open to the public and can be viewed on The Vineyard’s YouTube and Facebook pages.
