Much rejoicing! I'm leaving tomorrow on a jet airplane to Denver, Colorado for Denver Center For The Performing Arts’ New Play Summit! Last year I caught one of the readings and a world premiere and was more than a little bummed I hadn't seen more. But this year, this year I'm seeing it alllllllll.
I go out tomorrow in the morning and I'll catch The Christians by Lucas Hnath in the evening, and then starting Friday I'll be hitting the ground and running through all the great new work Denver has to offer. This'll include readings of:
Blind Date by Rogelio Martinez
Last Night and the Night Before by Donnetta Lavinia Grays
The Great Leap by fellow PlayGround alumni and June Anne Baker award winner Lauren Yee
Human Error by Eric Pfeffinger
Hanussen by Robert Schenkkan
And it's not just readings! I'll also catch the world premiere productions of two new plays:
The Book of Will by Lauren Gunderson
Two Degrees by Tira Palmquist
ALL THE THEATER! I can't wait. And as an added bonus I've got a whole hotel room to myself, which is basically the closest thing to heaven one can have on earth (I love my kids but hot damn do I love time to myself). I'm baking my family a pie to hold in my absence, and not looking back.
I'll see you tomorrow, Denver!
