Meet the Team

JAMIE WILCOX (playwright & director) holds an MA in Applied Theatre from the Royal Central School of Speech & Drama in London. In addition to her 10+ years as Artistic & Managing Director of Egyptian YouTheatre, she runs her own creative arts company, Play is the Thing. With You is her first full-length play.

 

Jamie began writing With You as a two-person one-act in 2003 to help make sense of the loss of her boyfriend, Eric, to suicide the year previous. Soon after, With You was expanded to a full-length play and a character was added to include Jamie's best friend, Ryan, a proud member of the LGBTQ+ community. Tragically, Ryan died in a flying accident in L.A. in 2009.

Play is the Thing is proud to pay all artists involved and donate all ticket sales in Eric and Ryan's names to the Utah Pride Center, specifically to aid access to mental health services.

Amy, Pedro, Tristian, and Amanda- you brilliant and beautiful souls, there are no words. Special thanks to my Aidan Erica and family, Shelby Rickart, Jake Larrabee, Olivia Henry, the Price & Mouritsen families, Dan Varas, Gabriela Baguley, Jess Vice, and Jake Arky.

 

Cheers, to Eric & Ryan!
