Live Production

Our first live production!

A story of love and friendship. Through the every day struggles of figuring out how to build a life, to the very real challenges of coping with mental illness and severe loss, you will laugh and cry with Georgia, Dustin, and Christopher @ the 2022 Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival!

100% of ticket sales will be donated to the Utah Pride Center!

Play is the Thing founder Jamie Wilcox believes that

theatre is magic and can change the world.

Theatre is truly a team sport and we believe theatre and play can be used to teach any subject.


The benefits of theatre participation are too many to number, but here is our short list of favorites:

- increased self-confidence
- creative problem-solving skills
- collaboration and sense of community
- respect and responsibility

- empathy and building character (both on and off the stage)

We could go on and on...
