Out of the Mount: Eric Samuelsen

Out of the Mount.

Eric Samuelsen has two plays in our upcoming Out of the Mount. the first, “The Exact Total Opposite”, is part of a series of plays starring He and She that New Play Project is producing next February. The other play, “Gaia”, is in serious competition for the best short play I’ve read in the past ten years.

As reviewed by Gideon Burton (this link also includes reviews of Out of the Mount plays “Based on True-ish Stories”, “Foxgloves” and “A Burning in the Bosom”),  “Gaia” makes “stereotypes of downtrodden Mormon women ring ever more hollow” as a premortal Eve stands down Lucifer and proves her strength and worthiness to be the mother of all living only shortly before the days of Eden.

Rumor has it that “Gaia” is the planned opening scene to a full-length work from Samuelsen.

We can only hope so.

  1. Indeed, “Gaia” is the first of six short plays that make up the full-length work, “The Plan.” Eric will be directing the world premiere of this next Spring at the Covey Center for the Arts in Provo. It opens March 18 in the Brinton Black Box Theater. Plan on not missing it.

  2. I was going to say the same thing as J.S.B. The full-length play is also published in its entirety in a previous issue of “Sunstone”–for those who won’t be in Utah this March, check it out. It’s well worth it.

    Oh, and buy the anthology. It’s great.

    As a general rule, I don’t believe in traveling 1000 miles for theater, but I can imagine making an exception in this case.

    “The Exact Total Opposite” is also a scene from a full length play, _He She Fighting: A Love Story_. And we are producing it in February in it’s entirety.
