801 Creative Women- A group of Utah women in arts that advocate, support and collaborate with each other. We hope to have quarterly events in 2018 and you can join our mailing list here. If you have an event that would appeal to this growing, engaged group of females, please send us an email at info@801creativewomen.com

Our first event, in December 2017, was in response to the need for more recognition and support of Utah’s many female artists. https://www.alisekingphotos.com/

What We’re Up Against

Wasatch Theatre Company is offering a special fundraising performance for our #801creativewomen initiative!
Tickets are $30 and all proceeds go toward #801CreativeWomen’s mission to promote gender equity in the cultural and creative sector.   Click here to purchase tickets
“What We’re Up Against” is a black comedy that takes a serious look at the ways women are treated in male-dominated work environments. This is Wasatch Theatre Company’s (WTC’s) effort to insert the regional theatre conversation into the #MeToo and #Time’sUp movements. Recently revised in New York, “What We’re Up Against” is one of the nation’s most popular shows. Eliza is an employee at an architecture firm, and she is tired of being slighted, ignored, and patronized because of her sex. She wonders what she has to do to have her ideas seriously considered. When she takes matters into her own creative hands, her colleagues and supervisors respond in humorously uncomfortable but all too-familiar ways. This is a piece that everyone should see, especially now, and one that WTC hopes sparks a community-wide dialogue. This is a world premiere of the newest version!

Whom do you love?
What do you love?
How do you love?
And why?

THE WEIRD PLAY, one of 10 recipients nationwide of the inaugural Writers Alliance Grant from the Dramatists Guild Foundation, lives in the space between romance and devotion.

“THE WEIRD PLAY is a contemplation of first love, the ecstasy of love, really bad love, self love, religious love, the end of love, moving on from love. It’s different from anything I’ve ever done, putting into play every aspect of theatre I’ve been afraid of taking on.” – Playwright Jenifer Nii, author of WALLACE, THE SCARLET LETTER, SUFFRAGE, RUFF! and KINGDOM OF HEAVEN

Featuring Dee-Dee Darby-Duffin, Susanna Florence and April Fossen.

Designed by Cheryl Cluff (sound), Jaron Hermansen (lighting), Phil Lowe (costumes), Arika Schockmel (props). Stage managed by Jennifer Freed. Directed by Alex Ungerman.

A co-production with Sackerson.
