U-Act 2008 Page-To-Stage Festival
Hosted and organized by Wasatch Theatre Company
At the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center
ATG was delighted to direct one of the six shorts for the 2008 U-ACT Page-to-Stage Short-Shorts festival. Our selected script was the only dramatic piece performed and brought the audience to tears night after night.
Torrid by Linda Eyring
Directed by JC Carter
Lilly .... Lindsay Marriott
Grandma .... Clara Susan Morey II
"Actually, most of the one-acts are comedies, which is to be expected in a setting where there’s not much time to build up the suspense or pathos necessary for drama. The exception was Linda Eyring’s Torrid, a conversation between a dying woman and her grandmother that veered close to, but didn’t sink into, the maudlin—partly because of fine work, again, by its actors (Clara Susan Morey II—whose humor comes across as delightfully deadpan in both her short-shorts roles—and Lindsay Marriott)."
