Casting has been finalized for Salt Lake Acting Company’s world premiere production of form of a girl unknown by Charly Evon Simpson

Amali is twelve years old, she is wise, and she is fascinated – by A Midsummer Night’s Dream; by her changing body; by the story of the children killed in the woods. With humor, magic, blood, and fire, this play is not your typical coming-of-age story.

Making her Salt Lake Acting Company debut is Amanda Morris*, who plays Amali. A resident of New York City, she was previously seen by Utah audiences in Lyric Rep’s A RAISIN IN THE SUN. 

Daisy Allred, Aaliyah Ann*, and Bradley Hatch all return to the SLAC Upstairs Theatre, having appeared in SATURDAY’S VOYEUR 2019. They play Marina, Charise, and Finn, respectively. Latoya Cameron* (THE CAKE) and Susanna Florence* (PTC’s SWEAT) return to form of a girl unknown after appearing in the New Play Sounding Series workshop production (co-presented by The Davey Foundation) last summer. Cameron plays Ma and Florence plays Dr G/Policewoman.
