SALT LAKE ACTING COMPANY’S NEW PLAY SOUNDING SERIES PRESENTS
A READING OF TURQUOISE WIND BY KURT PROCTOR
SLAC’s New Play Sounding Series presents a free reading of TURQUOISE WIND, by Kurt Proctor and directed by Keven Myhre, on Monday, October 29, 2012 at 7:00pm. The New Play Sounding Series is a part of SLAC’s outreach programming which provides an essential testing ground on which playwrights can see their work in progress and receive insightful feedback from the audience in a post-play discussion. We thank the Jarvis and Constance Doctorow Family Foundation for their support of this vital program.
TURQUOISE WIND is a mystical tale of three friends, Toni, Lisa and Charlotte, with three different outlooks on life, fulfillment and fate. When a storm blows into their Southern Utah town, it brings with it more than just the winds and floods, it also deposits the mysterious, young Dawn at the front door of Toni’s Moab rock shop. As these modern Western women deal with financial and idealistic conundrums, a miraculous and unexpected event will lead them to rethink their choices and beliefs.
Playwright Kurt Proctor says the idea for TURQUOISE WIND came to him in a dream. After scribbling down the ideas upon waking, he took the inspiration and wrote the play which he has further developed through workshops at the Denver Center Theatre and the New American Playwright Program in Cedar City, Utah. SLAC is excited to work with Kurt and present this moving, funny and intriguing play to Salt Lake City audiences as a part of our New Play Sounding Series.
The reading will be followed by a post-play discussion with the playwright, the director and the cast. Audience members will be invited to ask questions and share insight regarding the development of the production.
