PlayNotes

Teachers and other audience members can enhance their theatrical experience with PlayNotes, our resource guide. Created by the Portland Stage Literary and Education departments, these extensive guides present a broad spectrum of information and perspectives on each play in our mainstage season. PlayNotes appeals to a wide audience of student and adult readers who wish to delve more deeply into the plays on our stage.

The complete guide for our current production can be downloaded by clicking on the link below.
