We are so excited to announce our April events for The Debates 2021. This month we'll be digging into more of the responsibilities of our elected officials, as well as surveying the candidates for mayor. All this will culminate this spring with an original theater piece adapted from the election. We hope you'll join us and be a part of the process!
See you soon!
Paul, Katie, Kathryn, Hilarie, and Ariella

Join Theater in Asylum for a discussion about the roles, responsibilities, and opportunities of NYC’s Comptroller, Public Advocate, and Borough Presidents. We’ll give a brief overview of the positions, dig into a few key activities they perform, and then open things up for a discussion. While we’re no experts at any of this, we are theater makers and politics enthusiasts who believe in learning about these things together and empowering each other in the process.
