Schaefer Center for the Performing Arts, 733 Rivers St., Boone, NC 28607
Called “a master of the genre” by The New York Times, Sarah Jones is a Tony Award-winning performer, writer, comedian and activist known for her multi-character, one-person shows, including Broadway hit Bridge & Tunnel, originally produced by Oscar® winner Meryl Streep, and the critically-acclaimed show Sell/Buy/Date. Jones recently launched Foment Productions, a social justice-focused entertainment company aligned with her progressive, intersectional activism. A documentary inspired by Sell/Buy/Date will be its first production. Helmed by Jones in her directorial debut, Sell/Buy/Date explores one of the most critical issues at the intersection of race, feminism, power and economics in our current cultural climate: the sex industry. The doc, executive produced by Rashida Jones and Meryl Streep, is a candid, witty and political yet personal take on the topic, particularly in our new pandemic reality.
