The COVID-19 pandemic has put us all in a very challenging position. For the time being we can’t do all the things we enjoy most. Keeping ourselves entertained while cooped up or adjusting to social distancing is not easy. Jewel Theatre Company has developed some performance content that you will be able to access online and enjoy from home. We’re calling it Virtual Theatre.
Jewel Theatre presents KRAPP’S LAST TAPE by Samuel Beckett and starring Paul Whitworth*. Watch the video of the full performance from a 2011 JTC stage production. As a bonus feature on this video, after Whitworth’s impeccable performance, he talks about his development of the role in this Beckett masterpiece.

This viewing is available for TWO WEEKS ONLY from Saturday August 8 thru Sunday August 23, 2020.
VISUAL RADIO PLAY
Jewel Theatre presents THE HITCH-HIKER by Lucille Fletcher as the first in a series of classic mystery/thriller visual radio plays produced exclusively for online viewing.
With the health and safety of our audiences and employees being our priority, we are closely monitoring the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and following guidance from the Center for Disease Control as well as State and County public health officials regarding Stay at Home order and restrictions of group gatherings. We are therefore moving all performances of HEISENBERG to our upcoming season (September or later) and we are cancelling our production of ARMS AND THE MAN. If you already purchased tickets to one or both of these productions, as a subscriber or single ticket holder, you can 1) donate your ticket(s) as a charitable contribution to assist Jewel Theatre Company, 2) have us hold your ticket(s) for a play you select in our next season, or 3) request a refund. Please contact our box office at BoxOffice@JewelTheatre.net or call (831) 425-7506 to tell them which option you choose.
We appreciate the encouragement and financial support coming in from so many of you. Your donations are going a long way to ensure we can keep our core staff employed and planning our new season which we look forward to presenting once this crisis has passed.

By Simon Stephens
Directed by Paul Mullins
Featuring Paul Whitworth and Erika Schindele
In a bustling London train station, an unexpected encounter between free-spirited American Georgie and Irish butcher Alex thrusts two strangers into a life-changing game. When she turns up in his shop a few days later, the suspicious Alex is drawn into Georgie’s anarchic world and his conventional life becomes chaotic, uncertain, and undeniably richer. In this “vibrant and emotionally charged” (The New York Times) new play from one of theater’s most original voices, Tony Award–winning playwright Simon Stephens (The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time) triumphs with this surprising comedy-drama that rethinks the polar magnetism of opposites attracting.
