When Jarvis Antonio Green started JAG Productions in 2016, part of his mission was to incubate “new work that excites broad intellectual engagement.” To that end, the Upper Valley theater company commences its fourth season with the world premiere of a fantastical drama by Brooklyn-based playwright Nathan Yungerberg. Esai’s Table, presented in partnership with New York City’s Cherry Lane Theatre, follows three young black men as they brave a mythical sea voyage from atop a magical table. Starring Dimitri Carter, Cornelius Davidson, Marcus Gladney Jr. and Benton Greene, this imaginative theater work navigates subjects such as love, friendship, family and black lives. Catch preview performances on Thursday and Friday before opening night on Saturday.
