Nov. 5 in Denver: My First Play
By docteger on Oct 25, 2007
As a Sun employee, I write technical documents. But, writing a play is something I've wanted to do in my off-time for a long while. In January of this year, I decided to get off the pot, write this thing, and have a public reading by the end of the year. Well, 2007 is almost over and on Nov. 5 at 7 PM I will be watching (along with the audience at the Crossroads Theatre, 2590 Washington Street, in Denver) the first public reading of a sparkling new comedy that has been called (by a member of the local theatre community) 'fast, funny, and furious'. The Bride's Side is the name of the play and the bride's side of the family is the focus (not the bride - whom we never meet). The action begins as Philip and Rosie Newman are getting ready to lead a caravan of their adult children to the wedding of their grand daughter. On the way, cars are driven, pipes are smoked, trousers are dropped, and butterflies are released. But nothing erodes the enthusiasm of the bride's side for life, for family and for each other - even the secrets they spill as the bride and groom unwittingly cut the cake. If you're in the historic Five Points neighborhood of Denver, stop by. And if you're not, stop by anyway. The show is free, there's plenty of parking and there will be a talk back following the reading. The cast and I will be answering questions, taking feedback, and writing down your comments. At the very least, you can buy some delicious homemade ice cream next door at Blackberries. See my personal web site for more information.
