GRACE is a contemporary drama, with a flavor of dark comedy, by Craig Wright about a Christian evangelical couple facing a crisis of faith as they start a new life in sunny, promise-filled Florida, with big plans to open a chain of Gospel motels. An agitated neighbor and a caustic exterminator complete the eclectic foursome as destinies collide. The evangelical Christian couple, Sara and Steve, leave their dreary life in Minnesota for sunny Florida and the hope of fast money from turning abandoned hotels into a chain of gospel-themed inns. Their new neighbor, Sam, is struggling to emerge from the trauma of a car accident that killed his fiancée and left him badly maimed. And the building’s pest exterminator, Karl, is still tormented by a dark childhood episode. As their stories converge, Wright’s characters find themselves face-to-face with the most eternally vexing questions—the nature of faith, the meaning of suffering, and the possibility of redemption. Acidly funny and relentlessly searching, Grace is a trenchant work from an immensely gifted playwright.

Following the talk back session with the cast, we will head to: The Bombay House, located near the theater for dinner at 2731 Parley's Way in Salt Lake.  The theater will also raffle off a signed window card of GRACE for the Utah Theater Lovers.  It is opening seating in this small, intimate theatre.  So we should all be able to sit together.

    Exquisite! The actors presented their characters excellently with great depth, and as Megan mentioned, the production team did an incredible job! This play was very edifying to me!

    While not officially hosting this event, I will be joining you guys. :) Looks like we have a few new members coming this time. I will be in the theater lobby about 15-20 minutes early to say hi to everyone. I have short blonde hair, will be wearing blue jeans and a tan top with a black jacket. I'll also be wearing my Utah Theater Lovers lapel pin. See you soon!

    Hope to see you this Saturday with the Utah Theater Lovers!

    The entertainment editor of City Weekly just gave another glowing review for GRACE:

    "There are moments in a successful theatrical production when electrifying performances take the text to somewhere so potent that you need to remind yourself to breathe...Utah Repertory Theater's production of Craig Wright's "Grace" finds the desperate, yearning core that makes us need to believe in something."

    - Scott Renshaw, Entertainment Editor for City Weekly

    The show has gotten fantastic reviews. Still time to get your discounted tickets and join us on Saturday.

    "GRACE was unlike anything I’ve yet seen on stage. (Playwright Craig) Wright’s script ambitiously tackles weighty abstractions like space and time and explores them within the context of four people’s transitioning faith. With so much on this play’s agenda, I’m still impressed at how much Wright and Utah Repertory Theater Company got right and have me thinking about the play days later."
