ODA MIGHT @ Plan-B Theatre Company in the Studio Theatre at the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center

Plan-B Theatre Company presents the world premiere of ODA MIGHT by Camille Washington.

A doctor, a patient and an orderly walk into a mental hospital …
A psychological thriller blurring the line between truth and reality.
In partnership with The David Ross Fetzer Foundation for Emerging Artists.

Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin (THE THIRD CROSSING, NOTHING PERSONAL, MAMA, THE EDIBLE COMPLEX, (IN)DIVISIBLE, THE WEIRD PLAY, AN EVENING WITH TWO AWFUL MEN) is the Patient, an admitted criminal who might be in custody unjustly. Yolanda Stange (…OF COLOR, MARRY CHRISTMAS) is the Doctor, who might be completely unprepared for what happens next. And Flo Bravo (in her Plan-B debut) is the Orderly, who might be the only one who knows the truth.

Directed by Cheryl Cluff.

Nov 16 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Book Talk: Ayja Bounous at The King's English @ The King's English Bookshop |  |  |

How do new generations grapple with the idea that their children may never see snow? Even in Utah, home to “the greatest snow on Earth”? In her new book Shaped by Snow, Utahn and skier Ayja Bounous explores the threats to winter and watershed by climate change, especially in her beloved local Wasatch Mountain Range. From ecological and economic to emotional and psychological perspectives, Bounous calls for action as she realizes just how deeply her personal relationships are tied to snow.

Ayja Bounous is a Utah native and avid skier. She holds an MA in Environmental Humanities from the University of Utah and bachelor’s degrees in Music and Environmental Studies from Santa Clara University. She lives in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Places in the signing line are reserved for those who purchase their book from the King’s English. Pre-order your copy here: https://www.kingsenglish.com/book/9781948814102

This event is presented by the King’s English Bookshop and Torrey House Press. Torrey House Press is supported in part by Utah Humanities; Salt Lake County Zoo, Arts & Parks (ZAP); and Utah Arts and Museums, with funding from the state of Utah and the National Endowment for the Arts.

Book Talk: Re-Bisoning the West by Kurt Repanshek @ Ogden Nature Center
Nov 19 @ 7:00 pm – 8:45 pm
Book Talk: Re-Bisoning the West by Kurt Repanshek @ Ogden Nature Center |  |  |

The bison went from being one of the most common large mammals in North America to nearly being hunted to extinction in the 19th century. In his new book Re-Bisoning the West, journalist Kurt Repanshek traces the history of bison from their near extinction to present-day efforts to bring them back to the landscape—and the biological, political, and cultural hurdles confronting these efforts. Join Repanshek and the Wasatch Audubon Society at the Ogden Nature Center for a presentation on the past of this keystone species, and how they’re making a comeback in the United States and bringing important environmental and cultural value with them.

Kurt Repanshek is an award-winning journalist well versed in public lands, wildlife, recreation, environmental, and development issues. After graduating from West Virginia University in 1979, he was hired in 1980 by The Associated Press, initially as a temporary legislative relief staffer, but offered a full-time job late that same year. In 1988, when wildfires swept across Yellowstone National Park and captured the world’s attention, he directed and provided coverage of the fires for The Associated Press. He has a diverse journalistic background, having written about the rich biodiversity that lies within Great Smoky Mountains National Park and launched National Parks Traveler, the world’s top-rated editorially independent website dedicated to daily news and feature coverage of national parks and protected areas.

This event is presented by the Wasatch Audubon Society and Torrey House Press. Torrey House Press is supported in part by Utah Arts and Museums, with funding from the state of Utah and National Endowment for the Arts.
