September 25 - December 23, 2020

Right Here Right Now
This year marks the 150th anniversary of women's suffrage in Utah and the 100th anniversary of the19th amendment of our Country’s Constitution.  Because of these momentous and important events, Modern West would like to acknowledge and pay homage to women artists.  The exhibition Right Here Right Now celebrates and acknowledges the significance of these anniversaries by honoring the contributions of the past, while highlighting the voices and expressions of women today. The exhibition will feature the Work in Progress Mural alongside works by 20 contemporary women artists.

The works by the 20 contemporary women artists were curated to highlight work that speaks to the experience of being a woman here and now. All 20 artists either reside in or have ties to Utah. They are Trent Alvey, Christine Baczek, Liberty Blake, Pam Bowman, Sandy Brunvand, Rebecca Campbell, Shalee Cooper, Al Denyer, Stefanie Dykes, Angela Ellsworth, Kiki Gaffney, Jann Haworth, Amy Jorgensen, Lenka Konopasek, Sara Lindsay, Jiyoun Lee-Lodge, Pia Van Nuland, Jean Richardson, Wren Ross and Laura Sharp Wilson.

This important exhibition honors and celebrates the perspectives and contributions—past and present—of women to our cultural society. The Work in Progress Mural encourages you to take note of the women you recognize and acknowledge their contributions while providing the opportunity to discover those that are lesser-known. The 20 contemporary women artists are the voices of today, expressing where we are… Right Here Right Now.

Work in Progress
The Work in Progress mural is a community-based project, driven by artist Jann Haworth and collaged by Liberty Blake. It consists of more than 300 stencil portraits created by more than 250 local and national contributors, most of whom are self-confessed non-artists. The mural features an international crowd of women both historical and contemporary, being recognized as catalysts for change in the arts, sciences, and social activism. Over the last four years, the mural has grown from 28 ft to 60 ft in length. Workshops have been held in several Utah locations, New Orleans, Denver, and San Francisco. The mural has also been produced as a series of banners and over the last three years; it has traveled to over 24 venues, including Austria, England, New York, and San Francisco. It continues to be a ‘work in progress.’

September 25, 2020 - February 27, 2021

One-hundred and seventy miles west of Cedar City, the U.S. Government tested more than 1,000 nuclear weapons. Between 1951 and 1962, 100 of these tests were conducted above ground. In the push to develop a nuclear arsenal in the early years of the Cold War, the Nevada Test Site was chosen by the Atomic Energy Commission (A.E.C.) for its presumed remoteness, which has often read as a willful disregard for the relatively small populations that did exist in the “virtually uninhabited” regions surrounding the site. Scores of people living in southern Utah, including Cedar City, suffered the often unseen and unacknowledged but gruesome consequences from radioactive fallout.

If we peel back a layer we find the material that comprised the bombs, mined in the same region the fallout was raining down.

One-hundred and seventy miles east of Cedar City are more than 1,000 abandoned uranium mines in and around Monument Valley and the Navajo Nation left in the wake of the uranium program sponsored by the U.S. Government as part of this same domestic weapons development enterprise. The A.E.C. was encouraging uranium mining throughout the southwest, attracting everyone from locals, in desperate need of employment, to wealthy east coast prospectors. But it was the people living in southern Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico, and especially the Navajo Nation who were saddled with the legacy of radioactive contamination left behind by this boom. This history—which is really still the present as contaminated water, radiation-induced illness and nuclear waste storage and spills today continue to compound the impact of uranium in the region—is even further hidden from view. Monument Valley and the picturesque deserts of the region as a whole largely exist in the eyes of the world as the backdrop for John Ford’s westerns and the psychic embodiment of the rugged American frontiersman.

One more layer.

The monumental front man of these iconic pictures, John Wayne, was being cultivated as a cultural symbol of patriotism at the same time the A.E.C. was appealing to a similar sense of civic duty and national pride to collectively pitch in to this grand effort to be prepared for war. Just as there was no indication of what realities existed beyond the fourth wall of the cinematic setting, neither was there unequivocal information, warnings, or intentional protection from the harms that could befall downwinders and miners given. The taste for post-war romantic nostalgia for a bygone frontier era that was imaginary to begin with lingered longer than the poisonous truth, although in the end the fact met the fiction. Shortly after the Operation Upshot-Knothole series of tests, among the most devastating to southern Utah communities, Howard Hughes’ film The Conqueror was shot in Snow Canyon, Utah. Nearly a third of the cast and crew ultimately developed, and many died from cancer, including John Wayne.

This exhibition is dedicated to those downstream and downwind in an effort to peel back the foreground so that we might see the background more clearly.

Pericles
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kent Thompson

PERICLES will be performed for only the third time in the Festival’s history. Pursued by an evil king, Pericles sets sail on an odyssey of romance and spectacle. But dangers face him on every seashore as he drifts from country to country, from year to year, from intrigue to intrigue. His loves die. His friends deceive him. The gods are against him. But, in true storybook fashion, those who were lost are miraculously found, strange events reunite loved ones, and mysterious dreams bring family back together again, at last bringing joy and safe harbor to all.

Richard III
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Buckley

King Richard, “that foul bunch-back’d toad,” has manipulated his way to the English throne by exploiting (or murdering) everyone in his path. Yet the ambitious son of York finds his wit and enigmatic charm are not enough to survive in the twisted world he has created. He now must face his own destiny in this haunting tale of the feats—and failures—of kings. Shakespeare’s darkest history is a mesmerizing chronicle of a megalomaniac’s rampage to the throne and remains an irresistible study of villainy in a character to whom we are irresistibly drawn.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Vincent J. Cardinal

June 23 - September 11, 2021 • Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
Antipholus and Dromio are bewildered. Everywhere they go, they seem to have already been there, and everyone they meet seems to know all about them. The more they try to unravel the lunatic events around them, the more farcical their lives become. It's double the laughter and twice the fun in Shakespeare's youthful comedy of twins and mistaken identities, set in a Greek Island paradise in the 1970s.

#comedyoferrorsusf

DURATION

Approximately 2 hours, 10 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY

The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies. It includes a host of zany characters, but also Shakespeare's mild sexual puns and innuendo; however, it is suitable for all audiences.

The Pirates of Penzance
By W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
Directed by Cassie Abate

A shipload of sentimental pirates. A bevy of giggling maidens. A band of bumbling policemen. And a British officer given to hyperbole and patter, i.e. “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General.” All these and more bring fun and sparkle to one of the most charmingly silly operettas ever to grace the stage. Frederic, our hero, is governed by duty and forced to abandon his new-found love, Mable, and join the pirate trade. Alas and alack! Must he truly lose Mabel, or can he find a way out of this frivolous conundrum?

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty • Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the Novel by E. L. Doctorow
Directed by Brian Vaughn

June 21 - September 9, 2021 • Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
The worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and daughter, and an African-American ragtime musician intertwine and sometimes collide as they seek the American dream at the volatile turn of the twentieth century. In this award winning musical, their lives sweep across the diversity of the American experience to create a stirring epic that captures the beats of a nation: the conflicts, the hope and despair, the search for justice, and—of course—the ragtime.

#ragtimeusf

DURATION
Approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY
Ragtime tells a century-old story that strikes a chord today as social issues once again rise to prominence in our nation and world. As such, the plot includes some adult situations, violence, and use of racial slurs; however, it is suitable for most audiences except some pre-teens.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Britannia Howe

July 16 - October 9, 2021 • Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
A rarely performed play of intrigue and deception in the face of steely resolve, Cymbeline contains some of the Bard’s most wonderous language, leading us through wild plot twists, mistaken identities, and a heart-rending quest for love. When Imogen’s father wrongfully banishes her soul-mate, the princess must embark on a near mythic quest to prove her fidelity, escape her stepmother’s dastardly plot, and reclaim her love. In this fantastical work from the zenith of Shakespeare’s talent, the improbable becomes probable as kind strangers, dastardly villains, ghosts, gods, and long-lost princes pave the road to Happily Ever After.

#cymbelineusf

DURATION
Approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY
Cymbeline is a story of heroines and villains, love and treachery and includes plot elements of supposed infidenlity and murder. It includes Shakespeare's usual sexual puns and innuendo but is ultimately a play of hope and honor. It is suitable for all audiences except some pre-teens.

July 17 - October 9, 2021 • Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
Esther is a single African-American woman in early 1900s Manhattan who has sewn her way out of poverty stitch by stitch, creating fine lingerie for her wealthy clientele. But she is alone and cautiously exchanging love letters with a Panama Canal laborer on his way to New York, despite mutal tender affections with her Jewish cloth merchant. This warm, heart-rending play gently weaves an intricate tapestry of our human need for intimacy while exploring social divisions of race, religion, equality, and class.

With appropriate preparation before the play, Intimate Apparel is appropriate for all except pre-teens.

September 25 - December 23, 2020

Right Here Right Now
This year marks the 150th anniversary of women's suffrage in Utah and the 100th anniversary of the19th amendment of our Country’s Constitution.  Because of these momentous and important events, Modern West would like to acknowledge and pay homage to women artists.  The exhibition Right Here Right Now celebrates and acknowledges the significance of these anniversaries by honoring the contributions of the past, while highlighting the voices and expressions of women today. The exhibition will feature the Work in Progress Mural alongside works by 20 contemporary women artists.

The works by the 20 contemporary women artists were curated to highlight work that speaks to the experience of being a woman here and now. All 20 artists either reside in or have ties to Utah. They are Trent Alvey, Christine Baczek, Liberty Blake, Pam Bowman, Sandy Brunvand, Rebecca Campbell, Shalee Cooper, Al Denyer, Stefanie Dykes, Angela Ellsworth, Kiki Gaffney, Jann Haworth, Amy Jorgensen, Lenka Konopasek, Sara Lindsay, Jiyoun Lee-Lodge, Pia Van Nuland, Jean Richardson, Wren Ross and Laura Sharp Wilson.

This important exhibition honors and celebrates the perspectives and contributions—past and present—of women to our cultural society. The Work in Progress Mural encourages you to take note of the women you recognize and acknowledge their contributions while providing the opportunity to discover those that are lesser-known. The 20 contemporary women artists are the voices of today, expressing where we are… Right Here Right Now.

Work in Progress
The Work in Progress mural is a community-based project, driven by artist Jann Haworth and collaged by Liberty Blake. It consists of more than 300 stencil portraits created by more than 250 local and national contributors, most of whom are self-confessed non-artists. The mural features an international crowd of women both historical and contemporary, being recognized as catalysts for change in the arts, sciences, and social activism. Over the last four years, the mural has grown from 28 ft to 60 ft in length. Workshops have been held in several Utah locations, New Orleans, Denver, and San Francisco. The mural has also been produced as a series of banners and over the last three years; it has traveled to over 24 venues, including Austria, England, New York, and San Francisco. It continues to be a ‘work in progress.’

September 25, 2020 - February 27, 2021

One-hundred and seventy miles west of Cedar City, the U.S. Government tested more than 1,000 nuclear weapons. Between 1951 and 1962, 100 of these tests were conducted above ground. In the push to develop a nuclear arsenal in the early years of the Cold War, the Nevada Test Site was chosen by the Atomic Energy Commission (A.E.C.) for its presumed remoteness, which has often read as a willful disregard for the relatively small populations that did exist in the “virtually uninhabited” regions surrounding the site. Scores of people living in southern Utah, including Cedar City, suffered the often unseen and unacknowledged but gruesome consequences from radioactive fallout.

If we peel back a layer we find the material that comprised the bombs, mined in the same region the fallout was raining down.

One-hundred and seventy miles east of Cedar City are more than 1,000 abandoned uranium mines in and around Monument Valley and the Navajo Nation left in the wake of the uranium program sponsored by the U.S. Government as part of this same domestic weapons development enterprise. The A.E.C. was encouraging uranium mining throughout the southwest, attracting everyone from locals, in desperate need of employment, to wealthy east coast prospectors. But it was the people living in southern Utah, Arizona, and New Mexico, and especially the Navajo Nation who were saddled with the legacy of radioactive contamination left behind by this boom. This history—which is really still the present as contaminated water, radiation-induced illness and nuclear waste storage and spills today continue to compound the impact of uranium in the region—is even further hidden from view. Monument Valley and the picturesque deserts of the region as a whole largely exist in the eyes of the world as the backdrop for John Ford’s westerns and the psychic embodiment of the rugged American frontiersman.

One more layer.

The monumental front man of these iconic pictures, John Wayne, was being cultivated as a cultural symbol of patriotism at the same time the A.E.C. was appealing to a similar sense of civic duty and national pride to collectively pitch in to this grand effort to be prepared for war. Just as there was no indication of what realities existed beyond the fourth wall of the cinematic setting, neither was there unequivocal information, warnings, or intentional protection from the harms that could befall downwinders and miners given. The taste for post-war romantic nostalgia for a bygone frontier era that was imaginary to begin with lingered longer than the poisonous truth, although in the end the fact met the fiction. Shortly after the Operation Upshot-Knothole series of tests, among the most devastating to southern Utah communities, Howard Hughes’ film The Conqueror was shot in Snow Canyon, Utah. Nearly a third of the cast and crew ultimately developed, and many died from cancer, including John Wayne.

This exhibition is dedicated to those downstream and downwind in an effort to peel back the foreground so that we might see the background more clearly.

Pericles
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kent Thompson

PERICLES will be performed for only the third time in the Festival’s history. Pursued by an evil king, Pericles sets sail on an odyssey of romance and spectacle. But dangers face him on every seashore as he drifts from country to country, from year to year, from intrigue to intrigue. His loves die. His friends deceive him. The gods are against him. But, in true storybook fashion, those who were lost are miraculously found, strange events reunite loved ones, and mysterious dreams bring family back together again, at last bringing joy and safe harbor to all.

Richard III
By William Shakespeare
Directed by Kate Buckley

King Richard, “that foul bunch-back’d toad,” has manipulated his way to the English throne by exploiting (or murdering) everyone in his path. Yet the ambitious son of York finds his wit and enigmatic charm are not enough to survive in the twisted world he has created. He now must face his own destiny in this haunting tale of the feats—and failures—of kings. Shakespeare’s darkest history is a mesmerizing chronicle of a megalomaniac’s rampage to the throne and remains an irresistible study of villainy in a character to whom we are irresistibly drawn.

Directed by Vincent J. Cardinal

June 23 - September 11, 2021 • Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
Antipholus and Dromio are bewildered. Everywhere they go, they seem to have already been there, and everyone they meet seems to know all about them. The more they try to unravel the lunatic events around them, the more farcical their lives become. It's double the laughter and twice the fun in Shakespeare's youthful comedy of twins and mistaken identities, set in a Greek Island paradise in the 1970s.

DURATION

Approximately 2 hours, 10 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY

The Comedy of Errors is one of Shakespeare's most loved comedies. It includes a host of zany characters, but also Shakespeare's mild sexual puns and innuendo; however, it is suitable for all audiences.

The Pirates of Penzance
By W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
Directed by Cassie Abate

A shipload of sentimental pirates. A bevy of giggling maidens. A band of bumbling policemen. And a British officer given to hyperbole and patter, i.e. “I Am the Very Model of a Modern Major General.” All these and more bring fun and sparkle to one of the most charmingly silly operettas ever to grace the stage. Frederic, our hero, is governed by duty and forced to abandon his new-found love, Mable, and join the pirate trade. Alas and alack! Must he truly lose Mabel, or can he find a way out of this frivolous conundrum?

Book by Terrence McNally
Music by Stephen Flaherty • Lyrics by Lynn Ahrens
Based on the Novel by E. L. Doctorow
Directed by Brian Vaughn

June 21 - September 9, 2021 • Engelstad Shakespeare Theatre
The worlds of a wealthy white couple, a Jewish immigrant father and daughter, and an African-American ragtime musician intertwine and sometimes collide as they seek the American dream at the volatile turn of the twentieth century. In this award winning musical, their lives sweep across the diversity of the American experience to create a stirring epic that captures the beats of a nation: the conflicts, the hope and despair, the search for justice, and—of course—the ragtime.

#ragtimeusf

DURATION
Approximately 2 hours, 30 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY
Ragtime tells a century-old story that strikes a chord today as social issues once again rise to prominence in our nation and world. As such, the plot includes some adult situations, violence, and use of racial slurs; however, it is suitable for most audiences except some pre-teens.

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Britannia Howe

July 16 - October 9, 2021 • Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
A rarely performed play of intrigue and deception in the face of steely resolve, Cymbeline contains some of the Bard’s most wonderous language, leading us through wild plot twists, mistaken identities, and a heart-rending quest for love. When Imogen’s father wrongfully banishes her soul-mate, the princess must embark on a near mythic quest to prove her fidelity, escape her stepmother’s dastardly plot, and reclaim her love. In this fantastical work from the zenith of Shakespeare’s talent, the improbable becomes probable as kind strangers, dastardly villains, ghosts, gods, and long-lost princes pave the road to Happily Ever After.

#cymbelineusf

DURATION
Approximately 2 hours, 15 minutes. Subject to change.

CONTENT ADVISORY
Cymbeline is a story of heroines and villains, love and treachery and includes plot elements of supposed infidenlity and murder. It includes Shakespeare's usual sexual puns and innuendo but is ultimately a play of hope and honor. It is suitable for all audiences except some pre-teens.

July 17 - October 9, 2021 • Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre
Esther is a single African-American woman in early 1900s Manhattan who has sewn her way out of poverty stitch by stitch, creating fine lingerie for her wealthy clientele. But she is alone and cautiously exchanging love letters with a Panama Canal laborer on his way to New York, despite mutal tender affections with her Jewish cloth merchant. This warm, heart-rending play gently weaves an intricate tapestry of our human need for intimacy while exploring social divisions of race, religion, equality, and class.

Discover a new play when playwrights spend a week at the Festival and our actors present the plays as staged readings or workshops, followed by an instructive discussion between the playwright, actors, and audience.

Words Cubed is the Utah Shakespeare Festival's new-play program that seeks to nurture and develop openly submitted and commissioned-based plays by providing a professionally supported platform for readings, workshops, and fully realized productions as part of an ongoing commitment to create a diverse body of work.

Tickets are $10 and can be online or by calling 800-PLAYTIX.

All shows are in the Eileen and Allen Anes Studio Theatre and begin at 9:30 a.m.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The plays in this series are written for contemporary adult audiences, and some plays may contain themes and language not appropriate for children and that some may find offensive. Check the content advisories for each new play for more information.
