Bekah Brunstetter's acclaimed dramedy runs February 6-March 10

Salt Lake Acting Company presents the Utah premiere of THE CAKE by Bekah Brunstetter. The timely socio-political dramedy opens at SLAC after successful runs throughout the country, and concurrent with a run Off-Broadway at Manhattan Theatre Club.

The premise of THE CAKE regards Della, the best baker in her politically red North Carolina town, who is faced with a decision that pits her faith against family. Will she bake a wedding cake for two women – one of whom is as close as a daughter? A refreshing examination of both sides of a passionate debate, THE CAKE has already charmed theatregoers around the country and will soon do the same for SLAC audiences.

THE CAKE runs February 6 through March 10. Tickets can be obtained via tickets.saltlakeactingcompany.org, in person at the SLAC box office, or by calling 801.363.7522.

Game On: A First Glimpse of THE WOLVES

SLAC's production of the Pulitizer Prize finalist, by Sarah DeLappe, plays through November 11th

It's game time at Salt Lake Acting Company. Set on an indoor soccer field, The Wolves chronicles the warm-ups of a teenage girls’ soccer team, with all the physical, mental, and emotional waves that come along with being a young female athlete. The characters are funny and smart. The lightning fast dialogue flows and overlaps, challenging the audience to lean in to the fiery dynamics of the team. A deceptively simple setting lays the foundation for a play that examines the intricacies, excitement, and complexity of being a teenage girl in today’s society.

Directed by Alexandra Harbold and assisted by soccer consultant Joe Murray, SLAC’s production features a powerhouse company of actors, who, since early summer, have been meeting on the soccer field to practice drills and bond as a team. The specialized research and preparation that was initiated even before rehearsals began are sure to make this production shine.
