JAG FEST 2.0 – February 9-11th, Briggs Opera House, WRJ
Mark your calendars for JAGFest 2.0, February 9 to 11 at Brigg’s Opera House in White River Junction, Vermont!
Over three days, JAGFest will present four staged readings of new works that are written, directed, and performed by Black theatre artists.
The weekend-long festival of play readings celebrates and explores diverse, new voices in American theater. Each performance features a post-show conversation with the playwrights, actors, directors and Dartmouth scholars.
Founder & Producing Artistic Director Jarvis Green says “I am beyond excited to amplify Black voices in the American theater by having JAGFest serve as an incubator for new works that are written, directed, and performed by Black theatre artists. Introducing residents and visitors of the Upper Valley to the newest voices in American theatre with a festival that brings attention to the Black experience in America, in my opinion, is very necessary. Our company sees itself as playing a key role in bringing diverse actors and stories to the stage and to the Upper Valley, one of the most racially homogeneous regions of the United States, via powerful art that are artfully staged.”
