PYGMALION THEATER COMPANY concludes it’s 2021/22 season with “Body Awareness” by Annie Baker

 

 The play is directed by Morag Shepherd and plays from May 6 to May 21 at the Rose Wagner Center for Performing Arts located at 138 West Broadway in downtown Salt Lake City.

The show features Teresa Sanderson, Brenda Hattingh Peatross, Tom Cowan, and Tom Roche.

It’s Body Awareness Week on a Vermont college campus and Phyllis, the organizer, played by Hattingh Peatross, and her partner, Joyce, played by Sanderson, are hosting one of the guest artists in their home; Frank, played by Cowan, a photographer famous for his female nude portraits. Both his presence in the home and his chosen subject instigate tension. Joyce’s son from a previous marriage, Jared, meanwhile, displays some symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome but refuses to be examined by a therapist. The show is an examination of a modern family as they struggle with issues of communication, expression and the perception of the female body.

“Body Awareness” was first presented Off-Broadway by the Atlantic Theater Company in New York City in May 2008.

Body Awareness plays Thursdays – Sundays through May 6 – May 21, 2022 at the Rose Wagner Center for Performing Arts located at 138 West Broadway in downtown Salt Lake City, Utah.  Face Masks required.
