Since 1991, Plan-B has developed and produced unique and socially conscious theatre created by Utah playwrights.
We are the only professional theatre company in the United States producing full seasons of new work by local playwrights. We have produced nearly 100 world premieres, including Utah’s first by an African American playwright and first by an Asian American playwright.
Locally, our work with local playwrights has garnered Governor’s Leadership in the Arts Award and Salt Lake City’s Mayor’s Artist Award.
Nationally, five of our world premieres have been nominated for the American Theatre Critics Association/Steinberg Award for Best New American Play Produced Outside New York, four have enjoyed extended lives in New York and two have been nominated for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama.
Internationally, we have been recognized the past two seasons with the International Centre for Women Playwrights 50/50 Applause Award for our commitment to gender parity.
We are the only professional theatre company in Utah creating new work each season specifically for elementary students.
We are also the only professional theatre company in Utah creating new work each season specifically for radio drama.
