JAGfest 6.0 | MAY 13th- MAY 15th

Every year for the past five years, JAG has invited artists to spend a week in White River Junction, Vermont to further the development of a new play or solo performance. Over the course of the one-week residency, three-five projects receive an intensive workshop, constructive feedback, a staged reading for the public at Briggs Opera House and the attention of a dramaturg, actors and JAG staff. 


Over the weekend JAG will host a different play (writer, director and cast – eight participants maximum) including a solo work or small performance piece. Each project will be in residence from Monday to Sunday, given several days of development work time, and conclude with a public presentation. There may also be additional places, as space allows, for individual artists to work on projects outside of the collaborative process (i.e. writing a play; planning a production; working on designs, etc.) 


JAGfest projects from February 2021 & 2020 included: A CURIOUS THING; OR SUPERHEROES K'AIN'T FLY written by Jeremy O'Brian and directed by Tyler English-Beckwith, THE PROBLEM WITH MAGIC, IS: written by Johnny G. Lloyd and directed by NJ Agwuna, DEMONS written & Directed by Keelay Gipson, THIS TIME AROUND written by Loy A. Webb and directed by Jonathan McCrory, LANDBREAKER written by Azure D.
