What is a Roving Production?

Odds are, you haven’t attended a lot of “roving” productions. You’re in for a treat. Like a progressive dinner, you follow a roving production from place to place.  Here’s how The Suburbs will work:


Arrive 15-20 minutes early


Park* at at the First Congregational Church – 103 Main Street and cross the street to Keeler Tavern Museum & History Center.


Check in at our outdoor box office, near the Terrace. Our friendly staff will show you where to go.


Enjoy the first play, by Catherine Yu.


After the first play, you will be guided up the block to the The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, where you’ll see the second play, by Tony Meneses.


After the second play, you will be guided across Main Street, and south to the West Lane Inn, for the final play by Phanésia Pharel.


At the conclusion of the performance, use the crosswalk at the Cass Gilbert fountain to the First Congregational Church parking lot.
