9/18/08: The Overwhelming


By Doug Fabrizio

Salt Lake City, UT – The playwright J.T. Rogers says his projects begin with a question he's afraid to answer. As Rogers watched the news reports during the 1994 genocide in Rwanda - he asked himself what kind of person he would turn out to be in the same situation. Rogers' play "The Overwhelming" is the result, and it opens this week at the Salt Lake Acting Company. Doug talks to Rogers and others about the human stories in the worst of tragedies.

    Salt Lake Acting Company's production of The Overwhelming runs through October 12th. For tickets and information on performances and post-play discussions on September 21st and 28th, call 801-363-7522 or click here
