A re-imagining of DON QUIXOTE: modern-day women find and face their own windmills – which, it turns out, warrant more than tilting.

From the author of WALLACE (co-written with Debora Threedy, 2010), THE SCARLET LETTER (2012), SUFFRAGE (2013), RUFF! (2015), KINGDOM OF HEAVEN (2016) and THE WEIRD PLAY (2018).

 

Since 1991, Plan-B has developed and produced unique and socially conscious theatre created by Utah playwrights. This year is no different, Plan-B 2017-2018 Season has been announced, and theatre-goers have a good season ahead. 

Plan -B has produced nearly 100 world premieres, including Utah’s first by an African American playwright and first by an Asian American playwright. Nationally, five of these plays have been nominated for the American Theatre Critics Association/Steinberg Award for Best New American Play Produced Outside New York, four have enjoyed extended lives in New York and two have been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.

Fifty percent of their work since 2010 has been by female playwrights.

The Laramie Project

The Laramie Project

Jane and Tami became directly involved with Plan-B during the 2001 production of The Laramie Project. “An extraordinary feat of theatrical journalism,” the play highlighted the social issues, events, and pressures surrounding and leading up to the 1998 murder of Matthew Shepard in Wyoming. Tami is a long time member of Plan-B’s Board of Trustees.
