a world premiere by Elaine Jarvik
Five-year-old JJ (who has lots of questions) and eight-year-old Izzy (a know-it-all who doesn’t know it all) are siblings who have recently lost their grandmother. They embark on a funny and touching hero’s journey to try to make sense of loss, grief, death and life.
Featuring Ashley Maria Ramos and Benjamin Young. Designed by Aaron Swenson. Directed by Cheryl Cluff.
Public performances will be held at the Anderson-Foothill, Chapman, Glendale, Main, Marmalade, Sprague and Sweet branches of the Salt Lake City Library (free, details TBA) as well as part of Repertory Dance Theatre’s Ring Around the Rose Series on October 14, 2017 (tickets on sale summer 2017) and at The Sharing Place in observance of National Children’s Grief Awareness Day (date TBA).
In partnership with The Sharing Place. From the author of MARRY CHRISTMAS and BASED ON A TRUE STORY.
