A radically delightful evening of theatre in a diverse and vibrant community.

About this event

"Living in a diverse city doesn't necessarily mean that you interact with a diverse population -- The Jar makes that possible." ~Courtland Townes III, Jar Convener

"Joy is inherent to The Jar. Come to a room that is unlike any other in Boston. There's this community that's growing and building every day, the art and artists who come through just continue to get more fabulous, what are you waiting for? It's time!" ~Gina Christo, Jar Convener


The Jar utilizes a Convener Model which invites you to actively build a diverse and vibrant community. As a Convener, you’ll purchase a Jar of tickets for $60 – that’s 6 tickets at $10 each. You’ll then invite:

  • Your partner or other close friend
  • 2 people you would normally experience culture with
  • 2 people you wouldn’t normally experience culture with – people who may not look like you, pray like you, love like you, earn like you, etc. While these can be people you know – like an acquaintance, neighbor, or colleague – they are most importantly people you’d like to know better.

Together, the six of you gather to experience The Jar:

  • 7:00PM Doors & Open Bar
  • 7:30PM Theatre with Benjamin
  • 8:30PM Dialogue & Dessert


Benjamin Benne (he/him/his) is newly graduated from the David Geffen/Yale School of Drama MFA Playwriting program and a current member of the Dorothy Strelsin New American Writers Group at Primary Stages. His plays--including Alma (World Premiere: Center Theatre Group's Kirk Douglas Theatre, forthcoming productions: ArtsWest, American Blues Theater, Curious Theatre Company, Central Square Theater) and In His Hands (World Premiere: Mosaic Theater Company)--explore familiar, intimate relationships grounded in emotional realism but allow environment, time, and objects to invite elements of the surreal, absurd, and expressionistic into the fabric of their worlds. These works also center movement and sensory experiences of the human body to ask existential questions with wit and an imagistic dramaturgy. Benjamin was previously at The Jar in October 2019 with his play, Alma. More at
