Special Events

In conjunction with our Main Stage productions, Third Rail presents special events throughout the year. Subscribe to our newsletter for the latest information about all upcoming Third Rail events.


There will be a brief talkback after every Third Rail performance, except when it is immediately followed by another event (such as our opening night reception, readings, panel discussions or NT Live screenings). These 15-minute talkbacks give the audience time to explore the play further through discussions with the director, designers, or cast.

The Doctors Are In

If you’re looking for a chance to dig deeper, plan to be part of The Doctors Are In session scheduled during the run of each Main Stage production. These events feature carefully chosen experts who lend thematic insight through conversation with the audience.

Military Discounts
