The film of JQA kicks-off The REP's 45th Season, and we are thrilled to be bringing you a number of virtual special events that we believe will deepen and build on your experience of the play. Most are free to join, however, we believe that viewing the film before attending will allow you to more fully engage in each event. 

San Diego REP Dinner Club

Enjoy a special prix fixe dinner created for San Diego REP audiences while you view the show on your home screen!
San Diego REP is proud to be partnering with Cutwater Spirits to offer you the chance to enjoy dinner and theatre at home while dinner and theatre on the town is on intermission.

Stay and Play Club

October 25 at 3 PM PDT via Zoom

Stay and Play Club is like a book club discussion for theatre! Join REP Literary Manager, Danielle Ward and fellow theatre lovers for an interactive conversation about the play. It is strongly suggested you view JQA before attending this event. If you want to view it right before joining the discussion, we recommend starting the film at around 1 or 1:30 PM PDT.

If you would like, you can also join us and other theatre lovers as we view JQA together from our many different locations for an online Watch Party, which will start at 1:30 PM PDT. Only those who have purchased JQA and registered for Stay and Play Club will be sent the link for the Watch Party.

The Stay and Play Club discussion is FREE to join, but it is highly suggested you view the JQA film before attending this event..

“Do Good, Do More, Do Right"
Conversations with San Diego Public Servants

To be good, and to do good, is the whole duty of man…” –Abigail Adams
This country – if it does not put its house in order – is not worth saving.” –Frederick Douglass in Scene 8 of JQA
Through “a series of fictitious encounters between John Quincy Adams and sundry family members and political associates on the subjects of life, liberty and the pursuit of a more rational relationship with government,” Aaron Posner’s play JQA challenges audiences to examine the definition of government and prompt discussion about what governments should do for their citizens today.
Through a series of conversations held on Zoom between members of San Diego REP’s Artistic team and some of San Diego’s Leading Public Servants, we will strive to do the same.
What is government? What makes a good leader? How are these matters different in 2020 versus the 18th century? And how can we do good, do better, and do right for our San Diego community?
