Debora Threedy has degrees in theatre arts and law and recently retired from teaching law at the University of Utah to spend more time writing plays. She has had four full-length plays and several shorter pieces produced by Plan-B Theatre in Salt Lake, most recently One Big Union, about the life and death of labor activist Joe Hill. Two of her plays had public staged readings at the Utah Shakespeare Festival through its New American Playwrights Project: One Big Union and Nemo 1934 (later produced by Plan-B under the name The End of the Horizon). Her play The Third Crossing was one of the winners of the 2010 Fratti-Newman New Political Play contest in New York, where it received a public staged reading at the Castille Theater Center; it was later produced by Plan-B. Her play Underground had several public readings around the state of Utah and was produced at the Center for the Arts at Kayenta. She wrote and performed a one-woman show, Desert Wife, which toured the state of Utah with funding from the Utah Humanities Council. Her play Wrestling With Angels was given a public reading by Pygmalion Productions in Salt Lake City. Another play, Stumped, has received public readings in several states (Utah, Nevada and Massachusetts) and been published in an academic law journal. Most recently, her play Balthazar received a public staged reading at Plan-B in April 2019. The End of the Horizon is scheduled to be produced at Kayenta in the fall of 2020.
