Show Summery:

 “Pretty, Dirty” is a black box theatrical production that explores three women’s dependence on nature for a sense of autonomy and individual freedom. The story opens on the eve of the winter solstice and one woman’s attempt at a winter summit of Mount Timpanogos. After a life-threatening avalanche rattles her confidence, she must return to nature to rediscover her inner power meanwhile, forcing her friend to consider their own sense of agency in an increasingly regulated world. This show explores the dichotomy of being a woman who’s capable of being both pretty and dirty (in the literal and figurative sense) in a city that wants them to resign themselves to easily defined boxes.
