Art Organization: JAG Productions is Winning Awards and Audiences 

 Joining the professional theatre in the Upper Valley, JAG Productions has a mission to serve as an incubator of new work that excites broad intellectual engagement through the lens of the African-American experience.
Recently, Jarvis Green, Producing Artistic Director accepted the NETC (New England Theatre Conference) Award in Hartford (CT).  In his acceptance speech Jarvis said, “…we are constantly being made aware of the deep divisions that keep us segregated and siloed from people who  act, think, talk or look like us – it is crucial NOW more than ever that we build, encourage and support theaters that reflect the diversity of our nation and our world.
Opening February 9-11 at the Briggs Opera House (WRJ), the weekend will include readings that celebrate and explore diverse new voices in American theatre.
