The program is a series of discussions with artists associated with the Vineyard about their projects and careers.

The Vineyard, a Tony and two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Off-Broadway theatre, has also announced the start of the Vineyard Masters program, a series of master classes to be offered in 2011.

The season will kick off Oct. 24 at 6:30 PM with "'Law & Order' and The Stage," a one-time-only event that will feature "Law & Order" cast members including Obie Award winner and Tony, Emmy and Oscar nominee Sam Waterston (Abe Lincoln in Illinois, Much Ado About Nothing, "The Killing Fields"), Linus Roache (this fall's Vineyard production of Will Eno's Middletown) and Annie Parisse (Clybourne Park, Becky Shaw, The Internationalist at the Vineyard), as well as "Law & Order" writer Gina Gionfriddo (Becky Shaw, After Ashley at the Vineyard, "Boardwalk Empire").

"The Scottsboro Boys: From Inception to Broadway," to be presented Nov. 22 at 7 PM, will feature members of the cast and creative team of The Scottsboro Boys, the Kander and Ebb musical that premiered at the Vineyard this past spring and is currently in previews at the Lyceum for a Broadway run.

Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated stage vet Patricia Clarkson ("Pieces of April," "Six Feet Under," Three Days of Rain), who has appeared at the Vineyard in the plays of Nicky Silver, will speak about her career Dec. 13 at 7 PM.

The Vineyard Masters program will feature three noted Vineyard artists – Susan Blackwell, Kathleen Chalfant and Judy Kuhn – offering master classes in 2011. Details will be announced shortly.
