Salt Lake Acting Company to Stage MERCURY This Fall

Salt Lake Acting Company (SLAC) will present MERCURY by Steve Yockey, a co-world premiere production in association with Stray Cat Theater (Phoenix, Arizona), running October 11th - November 12th.

Three stories cross outside of Portland, OR in this pitch-black comedy with an illicit affair, a couple hanging on by a thread, bears at the window, the worst curiosity shop on the west coast, and an adorable missing dog named Mr. Bundles. No one is happy, people stop being nice, and blood spills. This mash up of myth, missing empathy, and "good neighbors" explores what happens when the mercury rises.

Playwright Steve Yockey is no stranger to SLAC audiences. His play BLACKBERRY WINTER premiered at SLAC in 2015 as part of the National New Play Network's Rolling World Premiere program, and his plays BLEEDING HEARTS and MERCURY have both received readings in SLAC's New Play Sounding Series.

MERCURY is a horror comedy of outrageous proportions, just in time for Halloween (and with its official opening night, appropriately, on Friday the 13th of October). SLAC's audiences will be delighted and horrified at its thrilling theatricality, as the play brings things to SLAC's stage that have never been seen or done before.
