FIRE! BY JENIFER NII

Wallace Thurman was a queer Black man in Salt Lake City at the turn of the previous century. He attended West High School, the University of Utah, and Calvary Baptist Church.

He was also the heart of the Harlem Renaissance.

And he has been erased from Utah history.

A revival of our 2010 production with Carleton Bluford reprising the role of Wallace Thurman.

From the author of THE AUDACITY, “Influencer” from RADIO SLAM, THE WEIRD PLAY, “Damned If I Do” and “Spam” from (in)divisible, KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, RUFF!, SUFFRAGE, and THE SCARLET LETTER.

TENTH ANNUAL FREE ELEMENTARY SCHOOL TOUR: BALLET FOR ALIENS by Gerard Hernandez, Jenny Kokai, and Oliver Kokai-Means

September 2022-May 2023

Jacob loves ballet, turkey sandwiches, Pokedudes, and his orange blanket. He does not love living with Crohn's disease or nurses who can't get the IV in on the first try. On the day of his latest infusion, he meets Sophie, a nurse unlike any other (who might be an alien). A play for grades 4-6 about living with a chronic illness and how imagination can help get you through.

Created specifically for grades 4-6 and inspired by Gerard’s experience as a child living with Crohn’s disease.

Free public performances at the Chapman Branch (Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 1pm) and Marmalade Branch (Saturday, September 17, 2022 at 3pm) of the Salt Lake City Public Library as well as the Collide Arts Festival (May 20, 2023 at 4pm) at Salt Lake School for the Performing Arts and one other in Ogden TBA.
