STRATFORD, Conn. -- The Friends of Square One Theatre, in conjunction with the Stratford Library, will continue the 11th season of its popular three-part series, "Play It Again, Square One," on Tuesday, March 22.

The event is free and open to the public, and coffee and tea will be served. The drama discussion series looks at recent productions by the theater company and offers patrons the opportunity to explore and discuss aspects of the play they saw.

According to Friends co-presidents Angela McKelvy and Francesca Hayes, the series continues to fill a void for theatergoers. "The first 10 years of the series proved to be a great success," McKelvy said. "We are grateful to Tom Holehan, the actors and the Stratford Library for helping us bring this unique program to our members and the theater-going public."

For the March 22 session, Square One Artistic Director Tom Holehan, General Manager Richard Pheneger and cast members will lead a discussion of the theater's recent play, "The Outgoing Tide." Bruce Graham's drama looks at one family's struggle to deal with the ravages of age and diminishment.

The critically-acclaimed work, which drew raves for its three-person cast, is the second play of the theater's 26th-anniversary season, now located on the stage of Stratford Academy.

"Play It Again, Square One" will begin at noon in the Stratford Library Lovell Room. For more information, call the Stratford Library's Public Relations and Programming Office at 203-385-4162 or visit its website. 

"The Outgoing Tide" continues to be staged, until March 20. Here are the remaining dates:

  • Thursday, March 17, at 7 p.m.
  • Friday, March 18, at 8 p.m.
  • Saturday, March 19, at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.
  • Sunday, March 20, at 2 p.m.
