JAG Productions & Cherry Lane Theatre Co-Production

March 19 - April 25

Cherry Lane Theatre

38 Commerce St, New York NY 10014

In ESAI'S TABLE, destiny meets eternity for three young black men atop an ancient magical table in this mythic tale of black lives, friendship, family, and love.


This beautiful show transports audience and characters on a mystical journey in which we experience the lives of three young Black men, and redefine what it means to be human. The vision to do a world premiere in the Upper Valley for the community that nurtured and supported its development will come to life in October 2019 at Briggs Opera House in White River. The play will subsequently transfer Off-Broadway to the Cherry Lane Theatre in New York City. Esai's Table will mark a pivotal moment for JAG as it's first world premiere, first Off-Broadway transfer, and first co-production. 

Esai's Table was originally developed and presented in Cherry Lane’s Mentor Project 2017, mentored by Pulitzer Prize-winner Stephen Adly Gurigis.
