Next month my new play Speculator Spirits gets a weeklong workshop at the Pioneer Theatre Company in Salt Lake City. The play’s a comedy about a young woman who brings her new fiancé back to her estranged father’s haunted liquor store. It’s supposed to be a quick trip back to her home town, but a high-school football hero ex-boyfriend trying to relive the good old days, a single mom on a solo girls-night out, and the ghost of the bear-wrestling town founder have other plans.
I’m really looking forward to working with director Wes Grantom again, who directed a reading of the play at Slant Theatre Project in December. If you’re in the Salt Lake area on February 20th or 21st, check the theatre website for times and stop by.
