Tickets

A day in the life of a playground: a rich tapestry of everyday heroes, thwarted dreamers, overzealous sports fans, undaunted angels, entangled lovers, and gregarious entrepreneurs. From dawn to dusk, people move through this familiar location and experience uncommon change that is funny, sad, and moving - if only one could sit still long enough to see it. Some of Denver’s premiere women playwrights, Rebecca Gorman O’Neill, Leslie C. Lewis, Nina Alice Miller, Carrie Printz, and Nicolette Vajtay have woven together five of those stories, taking place over a 24 hour period, with a park bench view just for you, in The Playground.

Superheroes

by Leslie C. Lewis

The Dark Star Patrol, a fictional group of Real Life Superheroes, has a code of honor when it comes to crime fighting and altruism.  Newcomer Zygote pushes that code to the limits, and in so doing, unravels and complicates relationships between friends and lovers at their traditional dawn meeting.

American Herring

by Nina Alice Miller

Irina and Valda -- rivals and strangers -- discover each other through their mutual quest for authentic herring, the little fish with the big connective power for certain cultures of the Old World. Meanwhile, Branko is cooking up the gooey goodness that could win him American hearts and dollars.
