The company is committed to producing quality scripts and developing new plays for young audiences.

Tucson: Borderlands Theater presents Dust Eaters

-----Original Message-----
From: Eva Tessler []

Subject: Borderlands Theater: Dust Eaters Press Release



CONTACT: Eva Tessler                                                        

                                                                     Winner of the Steinberg
                                                                        New Play Award
                                                                         for Best New Play
                                                                produced outside New York City
                                                                (American Theatre Critics Association) Borderlands Theatre initiates its 2007-08 with the play “Dust Eaters” by Julie Jensen. The play takes an intimate look at two families one white, one Native American, living side by side in the Utah western  desert.  “Dust Eaters” covers 140 years of struggle between the Goshute tribe, original inhabitants of what is now Utah, and the Mormon pioneers who arrived to claim their promised land.

We follow the life of Albertine who begins as a defiant 10-year-old Goshute girl living with a white family on a ranch next to her tribe's ancestral land. We trace the interdependence and resentment, the love and denial of the two families. In the end Albertine's great-grandchildren are grappling with a decision to store high-level nuclear waste on their reservation. The play is a chamber history that defines the past through everyday, intimate human detail and looks at the assumptions behind both cultural points of view. It presents history as we see our own personal history, as a life lived in the wake of seminal events.

“Dust Eaters” is directed by Barclay Goldsmith and includes a cast of four actors who play all roles ins this seven generation saga: Roberto Guajardo, Karole Spangler, Leanne Charlton-Whitewolf, and Ernie Tsosie.

Julie Jensen is the recipient of the Kennedy Center Award for New American Plays ("White Money"), the Joseph Jefferson Award for Best New Work ("The Lost Vegas Series"), and the LA Weekly Award for Best New Play ("Two-Headed").  She has received the McKnight National Playwriting Fellowship ("WAIT!"), the TCG/NEA Playwriting Residency ("WAIT!"), a major grant from the Pew Charitable Trusts ("Dust Eaters"), and was a finalist for the PEN Drama Award ("Dust Eaters").
Her play, "Two-Headed," was included in the volume Best Plays by Women, 2000.  She is currently Resident Playwright at Salt Lake Acting Company, and her work is available from Dramatic Publishing.

He has also worked extensively in theaters throughout the State, including performances with Arizona Theatre Company, Beowulf Alley and Invisible Theatre here in Tucson, Arizona Jewish Theatre, Actor’s Lab in Scottsdale, Phoenix Little Theatre and four seasons with the Flagstaff Festival of the Arts. Regional credits include appearances at The Pasadena Playhouse, San Jose’s Repertory Theatre, Seattle Repertory Theatre, the Denver Center Theatre Company and the Organic Theatre in Chicago.
