Nothing Personal

Kirt Bateman and April Fossen in "Nothing Personal"

This week, Plan-B Theatre Company opens what they're calling their "Season of Eric." It’s four works by Utah playwright and iconoclast Eric Samuelsen, beginning with "Nothing Personal.” The play is an allegory about what Samuelsen sees as the erosion of civil liberties and human rights in America. His jumping off point is the 1996 imprisonment of Susan McDougal when she refused to testify in the Whitewater investigation. Doug talks to Samuelsen about abuse of power and the impact it has on us as a nation. 

Plan-B Theatre Company's production of Eric Samuelsen's Nothing Personal runs October 24 - November 3. For details and ticket information, click here
