“Featuring Middle Eastern parables with a touch of Aesop about them, Michael Caduto’s Garden of Wisdom rewards the reader over and over.”
—Gregory Maguire, New York Times best-selling author of Wicked, Mirror Mirror, Leaping Beauty, and After Alice.

“Animals by nature know no borders, at least not by their own construction. Nature unites us, and The Garden of Wisdom is a fine place for us to meet.”

JAGFest

JAGFest Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

JAG Productions is pleased to announce JAGFest 2.0, a weekend performing arts festival of new works all celebrating the talents of African-American playwrights and performing artists.

Presented February 9 – 11 at Briggs Opera House in White River Junction, VT. The weekend-long festival of play readings celebrates and explores diverse, new voices in American theater. JAGFest will include four staged readings over the course of three days, each featuring 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.”

Time: 2/9/18 7:30pm - 2/11/18 9:30pm

Only Yesterday

Only Yesterday Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Paul McCartney and John Lennon together again for one night only. This intimate play by Hollywood writer Bob Stevens (The Wonder Years, Murphy Brown, Malcolm In The Middle) brings to life a little known night when John and Paul were becoming the most famous young men on earth. Stranded in a hotel room in Key West, they do what many young men do when they’re bored–get drunk. They have some laughs, but as their talk turns serious, they bond over the revelation of traumatic childhood events they have in common and find inspiration for the music that changed our lives.

Advisory: Ages 12 and up.

Time: 1/31/18 7:30pm - 2/18/18 9:30pm
