FISH EATERS BY NINA ALICE MILLER
TICKETS GO ON SALE JUNE 1, 2017
ALL TICKETS ARE $10.00
The workshop is an important part of the play development process for playwrights and new works. We are so excited to bring this back as part of our programing after a long hiatus. Our last workshop was Denver playwright Rebecca Gorman O'Neill's The Greater Good , which we produced the world premiere production of in 2013. It has since been picked up by Next Stage Publishing, and had a second production here in Denver in 2016.
We will be opening certain rehearsals to the general public interested in seeing the process. After 2 weeks of working with the playwright in residence there will then be an up on your feet, script in hand performance for the general public.
Fish Eaters by Nina Miller

Life is unravelling for Barry. Not that it was ever perfect – but it was damn close. Now, with his wife
gone, a ghost wreaking havoc next door, and all the kids (living and dead) acting out, even the nightly bliss of gourmet dinners, cooked up in the liberal-bourgeois utopia of a fancy shared kitchen, can’t keep the dream (or was it a fantasy?) alive. Time to face some ugly truths. Or can internet dating get a guy out of any of this?
