The Collected Plays of Eric Samuelsen

September 20, 2021

Today marks two years since Eric left us. It seems almost impossible that it’s been that long.

We are honored to have been Eric’s artistic home. It seems appropriate to share today that Eric’s entire body of work (well, the plays we could find copies of – his laptop remains an enigma!) has been published by Leicester Bay Theatricals and is now available as THE COLLECTED PLAYS OF ERIC SAMUELSEN.

64 plays
8 volumes

Four of the eight volumes feature introductions from members of the Plan-B family: Artistic Director Jerry Rapier, Playwrights Melissa Leilani Larson and Matthew Ivan Bennett, and Educator Colleen Lewis.

Read on for the full text of each.

We miss you Eric.

Actor Flo Bravo on Playing Lucía in “ART & CLASS”

March 22, 2021

It’s hard to be an outsider. In a state like Utah, it feels like there’s no shortage of opportunity to stand out for all the wrong reasons. Having a name that’s hard to pronounce, speaking a different language, darker skin, not being part of the dominant religion, having opinions that oppose the mainstream; it adds up.

Playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett on creating “ART & CLASS”

March 17, 2021

Over our 15-year relationship with playwright Matthew Ivan Bennett, we’ve had a lot of fun with radio drama, revisited Utah’s complicity in the Japanese internment through BLOCK 8, explored the art and life of Leonardo da Vinci in DI ESPERIENZA, opened our hearts to the impact of terminal cancer in MESA VERDE, explored the transition…
