About S&B

Brown University 
Providence, RI 

Each week, S&B board members read several plays to discuss at our Tuesday open meetings in Lyman 005 with an eye toward eventually choosing four shows to produce during the following academic year. When S&B isn't reading plays, members of the board support production staff by running auditions, assisting with the construction (and deconstruction) of sets and publicizing S&B events around campus. 

And remember: Tuesday meetings are open to the public and we love visitors. 

To suggest a play for us to read (and please, please do!), just click on "Suggest A Play" near the top right of this page or enter one into the box in the weekly listserv email.

Don't get the weekly listserv email? Email our Secretary Alexandra_Keegan@brown.edu and she'll hook you up.
