Recreation Challenges on Public Lands @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law
Mar 21 – Mar 22 all-day
Recreation Challenges on Public Lands @ University of Utah S.J. Quinney College of Law

In recent years, outdoor recreation has become a primary use of the public lands, creating myriad conflicts, challenges, and opportunities. A substantial portion of the public domain is managed for recreation in the form of national parks, national monuments, wilderness areas, and the like, drawing millions of visitors annually. Outdoor recreation is now big business, constituting two percent of U.S. gross domestic product (GDP), which is more than agriculture, mining, or oil and gas development individually contribute to the nation’s GDP. Conflicts have grown more intense between recreation users (e.g. hikers, mountain bikers, and ATVers), and new environmental problems have surfaced in the form of soil erosion, water pollution, and wildlife displacement, while the land management agencies lack the necessary resources to effectively address these problems. The symposium will first examine the economic, social, and legal framework for recreation on the public lands, and then extract lessons from specific recreation problems in the Wasatch Mountains and the Moab area. A symposium highlight will be “A Conversation with the Secretary” between Sally Jewell, former Secretary of the Interior, and Robert Keiter of the University of Utah S. J. Quinney College of Law. Ms. Jewell will discuss her unique perspective on conservation and recreation, based on her experience as Secretary of the Interior and as former CEO of REI.

Good Company Theatre Tackles Workplace Drama with “Gloria,” by Brenden Jacobs-Jenkins

Ogden, Utah– Good Company Theatre continues its 2019 with the cutthroat workplace drama Gloria by Obie Award Winning playwright Branden Jacobs-Jenkins.

It’s a regular workday in the offices of a legacy magazine in New York City. The intern is already there as a group of editorial assistants gather to take jabs at each other’s, well, everything. As they jockey for status, bemoan the state of print media, and do very little actual work, they fail to notice something is very wrong with one of their colleagues. A biting, darkly comedic play about just how far some people will go to fulfill their desperate ambitions.

“Branden Jacobs-Jenkins lays bare the ugly and cynical nature of a work-driven culture that rewards success at any cost,” reflects Director and Good Company Theatre Founder Alicia Washington. “Gloria pulls no punches.”

“Gloria is set in an environment where people are rewarded for their ability to wield language,” says Good Company Theatre co-director Camille Washington. “Every word is a weapon. And not just against one another.”

This full-length play features performances by Sahna Foley (Appropriate), Avery Franklin (The Flick), Brandon Garside (Pirated!, Children of Eden), Jesse Nepivoda (Constellations, Marie Antoinette), Lara Vo (RENT, W;t), Cassidy Wixon (American Idiot, Ruthless). It is directed by Alicia Washington (Surely Goodness and Mercy, Fences).

Gloria contains continuous adult language, and one scene of graphic violence. It is not recommended for audiences under age 15. Tickets are $20 at www.goodcotheatre.com or at the door before each show. It runs March 8-24, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm, and 2nd Saturday and Sundays at 4pm. There is an ASL show on Saturday, March 23 at 8pm.
