Announcing SEASON JAM!
Join us in person or online for a sneak peek of our 28th season featuring highlights from our cadre of talented commissioned writers and fellows. Followed by a reception in our courtyard where guests can mingle with Rattlestick artists over drinks and — you guessed it — toast and jam.
The evening will be hosted by Jesse Eisenberg, and feature offerings from Basil Kreimendahl, Dael Orlandersmith, a.k. payne, Arturo Luís Soria, May Treuhaft-Ali, Minghao Tu, and Jennifer Westfeldt. All proceeds will directly support our artists and their work this upcoming season.
Seating is limited, so reserve your tickets today!
