Closer @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
Sep 12 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 28 @ 10:00 pm
Closer @ Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center

Wasatch Theatre Company is proud to present Patrick Marber’s critically acclaimed Closer. A stinging look at love and betrayal in the modern world, Closer was the winner of both the Olivier Award for Best Play and the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Foreign Play.
The play follows the lives of four people as they form various connects with each other over the course of several years. Dan, an obituary writer, meets Alice, a stripper, after an accident in the street. Eighteen months later, they are a couple, and Dan has written a novel inspired by Alice. While posing for his book jacket cover, Dan meets Anna, a photographer. He pursues her, but she rejects his advances despite their mutual attraction. Larry, a dermatologist, “meets” Dan in an Internet chat room. Dan, obsessing over Anna, pretends to be her and has cybersex with Larry. They arrange to meet the next day at an aquarium. Larry arrives and so too, coincidentally, does the real Anna. This sets up a series of pass-the-lover scenes in which the quartet struggle to find intimacy but can’t seem to get closer.
Closer opens Thursday, September 12th and runs Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 8:00 p.m. through September 28th. There will also be Saturday matinee performances on September 21st and 28th at 2:00 p.m. Performances will take place in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center (138 West 300 South). Tickets are $15.00 and can be purchased at www.arttix.org or by calling 801-355-2787. The play is intended for mature audiences.

Presentation: Tar Sands Refining and Climate Justice on the Wasatch Front @ Chapman Library
Sep 16 @ 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Presentation: Tar Sands Refining and Climate Justice on the Wasatch Front @ Chapman Library

Join Peaceful Uprising for a presentation about an issue that’s seriously impacting our air!

Tar sands are asphalt-like deposits, and mining and refining them is a last-ditch effort to extract usable fuel from the earth. An oil-like substance is cemented into the rock, and turning it into usable fuel requires intensive processing that releases huge amounts of toxins into our air and water. It’s pretty much the dirtiest energy imaginable–yes, refining it is even worse for our air quality, and health, than refining regular crude.

Tar sands refining has already begun in North Salt Lake, at the Chevron refinery, which processes tar sands from Canada. This happened under the radar, without most people even being aware of what tar sands are–even though tar sands developments in Canada have been severely affecting people’s health for years.

Now, tar sands mining could begin in eastern Utah in the coming year–unless we stop it, which Peaceful Uprising and allies like Utah Tar Sands Resistance are working to do. But, we need to GROW the popular movement to stop tar sands in order to ultimately succeed. By demonstrating popular resistance, we show potential investors that tar sands developments in Utah are facing major roadblocks. This has set back start dates substantially, giving us confidence that we CAN win–with YOUR help!

We’ll give a presentation on what tar sands and climate justice are, and how this struggle is part of the broader movement for climate justice. We’ll talk about the effects of tar sands mining and refining on our health, and what the campaign has been doing so far.

Then, we’ll open a space for asking questions, and for sharing concerns, knowledge, and ideas.

If you’re interested in getting involved with Peaceful Uprising’s work, this is a great way to plug in! If you just want to know more about the issue and get updates about important events, that’s great too.

If you want to set up a presentation for your congregation, PTA, or other group, email Volunteers@PeacefulUprising.org.
