Westport Country Playhouse will provide a special offer on Cyber Monday on Monday, Nov. 26, and participate in #GivingTuesday on Tuesday, Nov. 27.

On Cyber Monday, the playhouse will offer five-play 2013 season subscriptions to Preview Week performances, which take place the first Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of each production, for $100 each. The offer will be on sale online only from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Monday, Nov. 26, at www.westportplayhouse.org.

The offer will not be transferable or applicable for previously purchased subscriptions and cannot be combined with any other special or offer, according to a release. "Taste of Tuesday" and "LGBT Night OUT" subscriptions are excluded.

The subscription series includes A.R. Gurney's "The Dining Room"; "The Show-Off," by George Kelly; "Loot," by Joe Orton; "Oblivion," by Carly Mensch; and John Murray and Allen Boretz's "Room Service."

The playhouse will also participate in #GivingTuesday, a national effort to celebrate philanthropy and the giving season through social media on Nov. 27, the Tuesday after Thanksgiving.

Donations will be used to fund the playhouse's five-play season of "Theater Worth Talking About" productions; student matinees, serving 3,000 youngsters annually; and educator workshops that are free to the region's teachers. They will also support Together at the Table Family Dinners, productions plus dinner, all for $10 for each family member, and free symposia, talkbacks and literary salons.

Gifts made in honor or in memory of others will be recognized with a special card to the recipient.
