FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Plan Unfolds at the Covey Center
(PROVO, Utah) The Plan premieres Friday, March 18 in the Brinton Black Box Theater at the Covey Center. This new play, written and directed by BYU professor and veteran playwright Eric Samuelsen, examines some of the real-life dilemmas and emotions that face us all—choice and consequences, pain and difficulty and joy—framed in a series of short scenes from the Old Testament.
This is Samuelsen’s twenty-fifth produced play, and his experience is evident. The Plan shows us real people dealing with real problems. Earnest, sincere, guilty, and oftimes hilarious, Samuelsen’s characters span the gamut of human experience in this engaging production.
The nine-person cast includes BYU students Ashley Jean Bonner (Rahab), Emily Ruth Foster (Ruth), Andrea Hepfinger (Leah), and Peter Layland (Boaz). It also features local talents Bradford Garrison (Adam), Dianna Graham (Bathsheba), Patrick Kintz David, Jacob), Travis Hyer (Lucifer, Joshua), and Julie Webb (Gaia, Eve).
The Plan runs March 18 - April 2 at 7:30 p.m. in the Brinton Black Box Theater at the Covey Center for the Arts, with a 2 p.m. Saturday matinee on March 26. Individual tickets are $10, and can be purchased at the Covey Center ticket office (open Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at 425 W. Center St. in Provo, by calling 801-852-7007 or online at www.coveycenter.org.
