Salt Lake City, Utah – Pioneer Theatre Company has launched its New Plays Initiative - and this weekend, it premieres the first of that series. The work is called Touch(ed) and it's about a woman's struggle to help her sister deal with mental illness. But playwright Bess Wohl told the Deseret News that even more than that, it's about relationships and how much we owe family. Wohl is in Utah, and joins Doug along with director Charles Morey and cast to talk about her work.
Pioneer Theatre Company's "Touch(ed)" opens this Friday, January 8 and runs through January 23. For tickets and information, call 801-581-6961 or click here
