LANESBORO, Minn. — The Commonweal Theatre, located in historic downtown Lanesboro, Minn., is proud to welcome award-winning playwright Mark Brown for its Sunday Salon discussion series on Sunday, July 13 immediately following the matinee performance of “Around the World in 80 Days.”

Part presentation and part audience discussion, Commonweal’s Sunday Salon series takes an opportunity to explore in greater depth some of the themes and historical contexts of Commonweal Theatre productions. Previous guest speakers have included Rabbi Michelle Werner of B’Nai Israel Synagogue, novelist and playwright Joan Sween, watercolor artist Charlotte Laxen, and World War II veteran Orval Ahmdahl. In July, Commonweal will host “Around the World in 80 Days” playwright Mark Brown, who will share his journey of adapting one of Jules Verne’s most acclaimed works. The cast of Commonweal’s production of Mr. Brown’s play will also be on hand to engage in the post-performance discussion.

There is no additional cost for the Sunday Salon event, but attendance is restricted to ticket holders of the July 13 performance of “Around the World in 80 Days” at 1:30 p.m. Reservations can be made by calling the Commonweal Theatre’s Box Office at 1-800-657-7025, emailing a request to tickets@, or by stopping in to the theatre located at 208 Parkway Ave N in downtown Lanesboro.

Funding for Commonweal Theatre’s programming is provided in part by a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, the Southeastern Minnesota Arts Council, through an appropriation by the Minnesota State Legislature, a grant from the McKnight Foundation, and private funders.
