Just a few reasons to support Z Space’s world premiere of Ripped by Rachel Bublitz

  • Ripped is in line with Z Space’s mission of supporting powerful and risky new work. Ripped has been a part of seven workshops and readings, but Z Space will be the first theater to bring this play to full production.

  • The cost of producing this work responsibly means that we will put funds toward hiring an intimacy director as well as talk-back facilitators. We are also flying the playwright out from Salt Lake City to ensure her involvement in the rehearsal process.

  • Executive Artistic Director Lisa Steindler has a long history of supporting artists, but this will be the first time Lisa will direct a show for Z Space. This is your opportunity to support Lisa in her Z Space directorial debut with this challenging production. This is your chance to give back to Lisa as an artist!
