GET READY TO PLAY!

JIB PRODUCTIONS is thrilled to announce its SPRING 2021 season!

Play With Your Food is coming to Fairfield and Greenwich in May and June:

It's one-act playreadings, it's an optional boxed lunch, it's the talkback and it's OUTSIDE! Tickets go on sale Thursday, April 22 and since each of our outdoor venues has strictly limited capacity, please make your plans early so you are not disappointed.

 

Venues

For returning patrons, this Spring's season will look a bit different than what you are used to. Performances each month will take place at two venues: in Fairfield at the Fairfield Theatre Company and in Greenwich at the beautiful Montgomery Pinetum. You will be able to choose between three dates each month: two dates in Fairfield and one date in Greenwich.

 

For both venues, you will need to bring your own folding chair and personal mask. 

 

Ticketing

Ticketing will also look different: For the first time ever, you will be able to buy a ticket either WITH or WITHOUT a delicious boxed lunch catered by a popular local restaurant.

 

In addition, tickets should be purchased separately for each month. There are no packages or subscriptions this year. This gives you the chance to buy one day of the week in May and a different day in June!

 

Because people will be seated in socially-distanced pods, please purchase exactly the number of tickets for people you would like in your pod. We will not be able to accommodate 'pod seating' for people who have purchased tickets separately.

 

All rain dates are one week later, @ 12 noon.

Rain day decisions will be made by 9 am each performance day.

 

Tickets $60: Play With Food

Tickets: $40 Play Without Food

Tickets go on sale Thursday, April 22

Each month between January and April, arrive at noon for a buffet lunch catered by one of our local gourmet restaurants, then settle in for a program of clever, provocative and often hilarious one-act plays written by both award-winning and emerging playwrights and read by terrific professional actors, many of whom are known from theater, film and television. 

After a short discussion with the actors, the director, and often a playwright or two, everyone goes back to work or continues on their day. It’s an opportunity for people to munch on lunch with friends, and then enjoy stimulating theater - all in their own backyard!

And within the lunch hour (and a half!)

A taste of what Play With Your Food has to offer:

In light of the current pandemic, we thought we'd reach out with Theatrical Video Treats! We miss you all, and hope you enjoy.
