PASS OVER by ANTOINETTE NWANDU OCTOBER 20-23,2022 @ The Argyros Elizabeth and Thomas Tierney Theater co-directed by SAVINA BARINI + RONEY JONES PASS OVER is generously sponsored by ALI LONG In-Person on stage with a fully vaccinated company *approved by AEA SHOW DESCRIPTION: “Moses and Kitch stand around on the corner—talking smack, passing the time, and hoping that maybe today will be different. As they dream of their promised land, a stranger wanders into their space with his own agenda and derails their plans. Emotional and lyrical, Pass Over crafts everyday profanities into poetic and humorous riffs, exposing the unquestionable human spirit of young men stuck in a cycle that they are desperately trying to escape. A provocative riff on the Book of Exodus and Waiting for Godot, Pass Over is a remarkable work of politically-charged theater by a bold new American voice.” There have been several landmark productions of Pass Over since its premiere. The Spot is proud to share that we will be producing the newest version of the play, revised in 2021 to offer a different ending to this cycle of violence and injustice– one of hope. “THRILLING, POETICAL, and UNFLINCHING.”- Chris Jones, Chicago Tribune SUITABILITY: PASS …

A reading of IRONBOUND

When: October 28, 2022 @ 7:00 pm
Where: Argyros Performing Arts Center, 120 Main St S, Ketchum, ID 83340, USA

Written by Pulitzer Prizer-Winner Martyna Majok Directed by MacArthur “Genius Grant” Fellow Samuel D. Hunter Featuring David Janseki, Nick Sacks & Aly Wepplo At a bus stop in a run-down New Jersey town, Darja, a Polish immigrant cleaning lady, is done talking about feelings; it’s time to talk money. Over the course of 22 years, three relationships, and three presidencies, Darja negotiates for her future with men who can offer her love or security, but never both. Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Martyna Majok’s IRONBOUND is a darkly funny, heartbreaking portrait of a woman for whom love is a luxury—and a liability—as she fights to survive in America. The reading is directed by MacArthur “Genius Grant” Fellow and Idaho-native Samuel D. Hunter (THE WHALE; A CASE FOR THE EXISTENCE OF GOD). Majok is Sun Valley Playwright’s Residency’s 2022-2023 playwright. This reading of IRONBOUND is part of SVPR’s events to kick off Majok’s year-long engagement. During 2022-2023, she will be offered substantive time, space, and resources to write a new work for the stage. Part of her residency will include writing time at the historic Ernest and Mary Hemingway House in Ketchum, which is managed by The Community Library Association as a private …

In 1939, Bald Mountain opened to skiing, forever changing the Wood River Valley and the winter recreation industry. However, over the last 20 years, this iconic mountain’s trees have been increasingly threatened by wildfire, a growing bark beetle infestation, and multiple disease outbreaks.

Quench your thirst for knowledge and join the Idaho Conservation League and USFS for an exciting presentation on the latest forest restoration efforts on Baldy. Speakers will discuss the state of Baldy’s forests and ongoing efforts to address their declining health, forest ecology, and upcoming opportunities to be involved with community initiatives to save Baldy’s forests (not to mention a sneak peek at the new gladed skiing from this summer’s forest health work!).
