"Exposed" Looks at Downwinders' Experience

By Jenny Brundin

Salt Lake City, UT – Mary Dickson has been called an "accidental playwright." But what happened to the Salt Lake writer at the age of 29 wasn't an accident. The experience profoundly changed her life and eventually led to Dickson's first full-length play: "Exposed." It opens October 19th at the Rose Wagner Theater. The docudrama is Dickson's journey investigating the human costs of the nuclear fallout that blanketed Utah in the 1950's and '60's. KUER's Jenny Brundin has the story.

Mary Dickson's play "Exposed" runs through November 4th the Rose Wagner Performing Arts Center in Salt Lake City. For tickets, call 355-ARTS or visit Plan-B Theater Company's website.
