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."
"...24-hour stint in a Denver park serves as a fertile, er, playground for five talented local playwrights." Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
