SURROUND EVENTS: THE SKIN GAME Discussions last approximately 50 minutes and can be attended by all Mint patrons to any performance of The Skin Game free of charge.

Saturday, June 25 (following the matinee) Nouveau Riche—Galsworthy and Chekhov Explore the Struggle for Progress. ARTISTIC DIRECTOR

JONATHAN BANK

Join Christian Parker, Dramaturg of Atlantic Theatre Co.’s current production of Chekhov’s The Cherry Orchard and Mint Artistic Director Jonathan Bank as they contrast and compare the characters of Lopakhin (The Cherry Orchard) and Hornblower (The Skin Game). Both characters are newly rich, both want to develop land owned for centuries by rich ruling families, both are despised for it—what makes these characters ‘tick’ and why is their struggle a compelling one for two master dramatists?

Saturday, July 9 (following the matinee) Playing Galsworthy Join cast members and Mint Artistic Director Jonathan Bank for a discussion on the making of The Skin Game.
