The look of the new E-Class screams performance. Yet it moves with a quiet intelligence: constantly watching and analyzing. Then if it senses that you aren’t responding to a danger, it does. Innovations including a revolutionary stereoscopic camera, Cross-Traffic Assist, Pedestrian Recognition and Steering Assist are making their debut in the E-Class. Without a doubt, it is the most intelligent, most exhilarating E-Class ever.

Green Room Gallery

Our green room gallery is a collective endeavor between community and artists. This space allows us to offer a variety of diverse visual perspectives from local artists based on inspiration found from themes raised onstage. In keeping with SLAC’s mission to nurture our local, creative community, we celebrate these reinforcements born between the visual and performing arts. This exhibit's artist has generously chosen to donate 20% of the proceeds to SLAC.

Throughout the run of 4000 MILES we are pleased to present work by long time SLAC subscriber Collin Chandler. Collin sees character and metaphor in intimate, inanimate subjects. His “locked” series, or landscapes, or industrials all imply subtext, and thus he has named this exhibit beneath our stage "Subscript." In 2010, at forty-three, Collin had the notion to start painting while visiting galleries in the French Quarter. He studied under accomplished Utah landscape painter Shanna Kunz, and set out to be an accomplished painter himself. “My wife and I have been subscribers for a long time now and have made a tradition of Crown Burgers and Cabernet in the Green Room before each SLAC offering. We’ve bonded and blathered there with crowds of friends, or another couple, or our kids, or just each other. We’re always excited to see new art and discuss whatever is hanging before taking our seats upstairs. I couldn’t be more pleased to be the topic on those walls during this production.” -Collin Chandler Spring renewals is an exciting time here at SLAC, and Collin’s exhibit is a reminder of the diverse and brave subscribers that allow this theatre to exist.

University Professional Theatre Program SLAC is delighted to partner with local universities to heighten theatre students’ educational experience by taking them out of the classroom and hiring them at a professional theatre. We are excited to welcome Salt Lake Community College student Austin Grant as part of the University Professional Theatre Program. “I’m definitely excited to be making my professional theatre debut at SLAC. It’s been an absolute pleasure thus far. I couldn’t be happier with 4000 MILES, and the team working on the show with me. Before working at SLAC, I’ve only performed plays in high school and at Salt Lake Community College. I’ve loved performing at SLCC Black Box Theatre, and am appreciative of the education and experiences I have gained at SLCC. Working at a professional theatre company as a student is an incredible opportunity, and I have no doubts the UPTP will prepare me to take the next step in my career.”

Director's Notes Amy Herzog has discussed in many interviews the family characters and politics that were the basis for her plays AFTER THE REVOLUTION and its successor 4000 MILES. For those of you who haven’t done the Google search, the fascinating character of Vera, who also appears in AFTER THE REVOLUTION, is based on Herzog’s own grandmother, Leepee, who she describes as “an old New York lefty… funny, dry, sassy and devastating.” In AFTER THE REVOLUTION audiences were introduced to Vera as the widow of Joe Joseph, the patriarch of their Marxist family. It’s now 2007 and Joe has been dead ten years when Vera is visited by her grandson Leo at the end of his cross-country bike ride. Herzog herself completed such a ride and stayed with her grandmother in the West Village for several months. Vera lives on her own, political passions intact but dealing with the frustrations of old age. Herzog has said how much she wanted to write an older character with the dimensions that she observed in her grandmother “because I do think there’s a way that older people can just disappear. I feel, in a very pronounced way, my own grandmother’s fight to remain present and relevant.” To be “present and relevant” while struggling with the frustrations of parts that don’t work so well and words that won’t come, not to mention the attitudes of younger relatives, is a struggle that fascinated me. I guess it’s easier to be fascinated when one is observing rather than partaking, and I have spent lots of time lately thinking about my own elderly relatives. And of course working on a play about this particular intergenerational friendship I am drawn to examine my own relationships with older female relatives; my two utterly different grandmothers and my great grandmother Harriet who lived with us. A first generation New Zealander, she was a farmer’s daughter who married the farm hand and then raised her children in rural New Zealand; profoundly


conservative in her politics she was intent on holding onto her vision of herself as the matriarch through family and financial upheaval and the suicide of one of her sons. I look back on the two us together, the “I know everything that is worth knowing” 16 year old and the 93 year old with very little real power in the world, with some wonder (and a little embarrassment). It’s easy to find dramatic conflict in the confrontation of opposites, but the subtleties of Herzog’s writing and the gentle nuances of the relationship between Vera and Leo result in the exploration of the similarities of outlook and personality despite the generational divide. Not that the divide doesn’t exist, and it’s the source of much frustration between the two, but it doesn’t ultimately define or limit who they are together. Despite its intimacy Herzog’s play gently reminds us that the private individual experience is always part of a larger political and historical process.

Director, Adrianne Moore

Streetlight Woodpecker by Shawn Fisher Monday, April 28 at 7:00 PM STREETLIGHT WOODPECKER follows the story of Benji, an undersized Marine who has returned to his Irish-Catholic neighborhood in Philadelphia after being critically injured during battle. He bears not only the medals he earned but also the scars, and now that he has come home he must face the emotional wounds he avoided by going to war. When his father’s suicide renders him homeless just days after his return, Benji moves in with his childhood friend Sam. Soon questions that threatened Benji throughout his youth resurface, questions about his manhood and his relationship with Sam, and he distracts himself with booze, pills, and reckless fighting. Meanwhile, as Sam tries to protect him from self-destruction, Benji plots to kill a woodpecker that loudly bangs the metal streetlights in the neighborhood. We thank the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation for their support of this vital program.

Salt Lake Acting Company’s Plays in Consideration AN ILIAD

by Lisa Peterson & Dennis O’Hare

Obie Award Winner Based on Homer’s The Illiad Translated by Robert Fagles AN ILIAD is a modern-day retelling of Homer's classic. Through poetry and humor, the ancient tale of the Trojan War and the modern world collide.

DISGRACED by Ayad Akhtar

Pulizter Prize for Drama Obie Award for Playwrighting Corporate lawyer Amir Kapoor is happy, in love, and about to land the biggest career promotion of his life. But beneath the veneer, success has come at a price.


Tony Award & Pulitzer Prize Winning Playwright Hailed as the first female "superagent," Sue Mengers’ clients, which included Barbra Streisand, were the talk of the town, as were her dinner parties. You’re invited into her glamorous home for an evening of dish and dirty secrets.


by William Missouri Downs

World Premiere A quirky flight attendant who is a romance novel junkie meets Mr. Perfect and it doesn’t work out. She sets out on a search to find the purpose of life by connecting the random chance events that make up existence. A sort of romantic comedy by the playwright who wrote THE EXIT INTERVIEW.

RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN by Gina Gionfriddo

Obie Award Winning Playwright After graduate school, Catherine and Gwen chose polar opposite paths. Catherine built a career as a rockstar academic, while Gwen built a home with her husband and children. This comedy is an unflinching look at gender politics in the wake of 20th century feminist ideals.

STUPID F**KING BIRD by Aaron Posner

An aspiring young theatre director named Conrad struggles to get out from under the shadow of his mother Emma, a famous actress. Meanwhile, his young muse Nina falls for Emma's lover Doyle, and everyone discovers just how disappointing love, art, and growing up can be. In this hilarious and irreverent riff on unrequited love, Aaron Posner transforms the famous "subtext" of a classic play into exuberant scenes and songs.


2014/2015 Season TRIBES

by Nina Raine

Drama Desk Award-Outstanding Play Billy, born deaf into a hearing family, had adapted brilliantly to his family's unconventional ways, but they've never returned the favor. It's not until he meet Sylvia, a young woman on the brink of deafness, that he finally understands what it means to be understood.

TWO STORIES by Elaine Jarvik

World Premiere Jodi is a struggling journalist eager to keep her job in a changing economy when a Pakistani family moves in next door. What follows is an exploration of diverse landscapes, including economic risings and fallings, sensationalism and honesty, getting ahead and falling behind, and more intimately, how identity is bridged between generations.


by Allen Nevins & Nancy Borgenicht

World Premiere SLAC's annual musical satire that makes living in Utah bearable.


A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD Book and Lyrics by Willie Reale

Music by Robert Reale Based on the books by Arnold Lobel The two best friends celebrate and rejoice in their differences that make them unique and special. Part vaudeville, part make believe, all charm, A YEAR WITH FROG AND TOAD tells the story of a friendship that endures, weathering all seasons.

JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH Adapted for the stage by David Wood From the book by Roald Dahl

The story of Roald Dahl’s classic tale is faithfully told by James himself and the insect characters: Miss Spider, Old-Green-Grasshopper, Centipede, Ladybird and Earthworm.
