Salt Lake Acting Company presents the world premiere of SILENT DANCER by Utah-based playwright, Kathleen Cahill, beginning April 10th. The play recieves its premiere following several developmental workshops both at SLAC (including a New Play Sounding Series reading in March, 2017) and Sacramento’s B Street Theatre.
Set in the tumultuous world of Manhattan in the 1920’s, SILENT DANCER is being billed as a “groundbreaking dance/play/romance about dangerous love, secret identities, criminals, silent movies, and the most famous couple in New York.” In it, Cahill populates an original story about an aspiring dancer with real-life historical figures—F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald, as well as infamous gangster Jackie “Legs” Diamond.
SILENT DANCER runs April 10 through May 12. Tickets can be obtained via tickets.saltlakeactingcompany.org, in person at the SLAC box office, or by calling 801.363.7522.
