Since 1991, Plan-B has developed and produced unique and socially conscious theatre created by Utah playwrights.
We share stories with a local point-of-view as well as global stories from a local perspective.
We nourish a pool of local playwrights to rival that found in any other city in the country.
We believe the best way to serve our community is to reflect it onstage – to create conversation, to provide an opportunity for patrons to think a little differently, to consider a point-of-view that may have been previously foreign, to listen in a way they may not have before.
We have produced nearly 100 world premieres, including Utah’s first by an African American playwright and first by an Asian American playwright. Nationally, five of these plays have been nominated for the American Theatre Critics Association/Steinberg Award for Best New American Play Produced Outside New York, four (soon to be five) have enjoyed extended lives in New York and two have been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Fifty percent of our work since 2010 has been by female playwrights.
As noted by the Dramatists Guild of America, Plan-B is the only professional theatre company in the United States producing full seasons of new work by local playwrights. We are also the only theatre company in Utah history to have toured coast-to-coast, to have toured internationally and to have transferred an intact production off-Broadway. We are also the only Utah theatre company committed to producing
