In conjunction with FALLING OUT on March 20, journalist and writer Mary Dickson’s play, EXPOSED, will have two free readings in Salt Lake County. Mary will be there to discuss her work.
During the Cold War the U.S. government exploded 926 nuclear bombs — all more powerful than the one that leveled Hiroshima — at the Nevada test site. Mary Dickson’s powerful and very personal play documents the human cost of nuclear testing. After its premiere at Plan B Theatre, the Chicago Tribune Syndicate called it “a sacrament of grief and anger that doesn’t stop at the edge of the stage or end with the actors’ bows. Be careful. It gets under the skin and into the marrow.”
Monday, February 24, 6:30pm, Salt Lake City Public Library Auditorium, 210 E 400 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84111
Tuesday, March 10, 6:30pm, Salt Lake County Library’s Viridian Event Center, 8030 S 1825 W, West Jordan, UT 84088
