WELCOME Dear SLAC Subscribers and Community, Nearly 19 months and countless postponements later, I’m absolutely delighted to write the following words: Welcome, dear friends, to the world premiere of Elaine Jarvik’s Four Women Talking About the Man Under the Sheet. For this particular piece, the final timing seems like fate. While the core of the play that was to open in March 2020 is the same, it’s now a much stronger piece. So much has occurred in our world that has influenced the revisions to Elaine’s play. We as a theatre industry have finally acknowledged inequities present at all levels, and SLAC is making meaningful strides toward a better future for all who work and enjoy theatre here.

four women talking about the man under the sheet

February 2 - March 6, 2022 You are an expert on safety, but you no longer feel safe. You have just moved to a small college town to teach architecture, but you realize that your nightmares have followed you. And now, uncertainty lies around every corner. Egress is a provocative psychological thriller that draws us into the mind of a woman struggling to face her fears.

April 6 - May 15, 2022 Join SLAC for a Utah premiere nearly 15 years in the making! A 2008 Tony Award and Drama Desk winner, Passing Strange is a poignant, one-of-a-kind storytelling experience. Through powerful music and soulful lyrics, Passing Strange transcends theatrical genres and follows a Black artist simply referred to as “The Youth” around the world on a bohemian journey of selfdiscovery. Don’t miss this rarely-produced gem from the brilliant minds of Stew, Heidi Rodewald, and Annie Dorsen.

July 13 - August 21, 2022 Summer fun returns to SLAC with the second iteration of #SLACabaret. What will be in store? Only the stranger-thanfiction news cycle will tell. One thing is for sure: laughter and celebration will once again take center stage. Don’t miss it!

Salt Lake Acting Company’s Wardhouse sits on the traditional and unceded land of the Ute, Paiute, Goshute and Shoshone Tribes. We recognize the historic and enduring relationships between Indigenous people and their ancestral territories, and honor the Indigenous stewards past, present, and future of this land. This acknowledgment is a small example of our dedication to anti-racist practices, expressed in solidarity with those working to dismantle the ongoing legacies of settler colonialism and white supremacy.
