One theatre grant, in partnership with Salt Lake Acting Company, was awarded to Katherine Vondy. Katherine is a Los Angeles-based writer and director whose credits span theater, film, and literature. Her award-winning short film, The Broken Heart of Gnocchi Bolognese, has screened at festivals worldwide. Her play, The Fermi Paradox, will receive a week long workshop at the Salt Lake Acting Company, directed by Chase Ramsey. A company of local actors and artists including a dramaturg, choreographer, and filmmaker,
will also participate in the project. The workshop will culminate in a public staged reading at SLAC on Monday, August 31, 2015 at 7pm.
