SALT LAKE ACTING COMPANY’S NEW PLAY SOUNDING SERIES PRESENTS
OF DEVIL DOG SIX BY FENGAR GAEL READING
SLAC’s New Play Sounding Series presents a free reading of DEVIL DOG SIX, by Fengar Gael and directed by Alexandra Harbold, onMonday, December 3, 2012 at 7:00pm. DEVIL DOG SIX tells the story of a young woman jockey who falls from a horse and the process of her recovery leads her to a radical transformation of body and soul in her quest to conquer the sport of kings.
Devon Tramore doesn’t let the fact that she is the only female in the locker room of horse jockey’s keep her from pursuing her passion, in fact she uses all her faculties and qualities as a woman to compete, fight and win. When she has a horrific accident during a race, an investigation into her career, her personal life and the sport is launched. While details of the accident emerge,
Devon’s recovery progresses with some unexpected and bizarre side effects.
Director Alexandra Harbold says, “Fengar’s script is a kinetic rush – physical, outrageous, full of raw ambition and incredibly muscular hope. It’s going to be a wild ride!”
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.
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.
