Salt Lake City, UT – The playwright Carlos Murillo has said that his work "dark play" isn't meant to be a morality tale. It is a true story of an on-line relationship between two teenagers - and to be sure, it has dire consequences in the real world. But Murillo says it's a love-story that could have happened in any generation. "It's a Rebel Without a Cause in its own way," he says, "but instead of playing chicken with cars, it's playing chicken on the internet." The Salt Lake Acting Company opens "dark play" this week, and Thursday, we're talking to Murillo and others about the production.
"dark play or Stories for Boys" runs January 28 - February 22 at the Salt Lake Acting Company. For tickets and information, call 801-363-7522 or click here
