Questionable Theatrics: The Third Theatric
Questionable Theatrics:  The Third Theatric
It's a new year! 2019 is getting off to a strong start as our FREE reading series of new plays by Colorado playwrights continues with Questionable Theatrics: The Third Theatric. Say that quickly and you can learn to do an impression of Sylvester the Cat! But that's not the only great thing about this month's QT. This is our most ambitious night of readings yet, featuring FIVE different plays by five different Colorado playwrights. Rebecca Gorman O'Neill is our curator and thought that five was too many, but Seth Palmer Harris, who directs most of these things, arrogantly disagreed and then arrogantly cast himself in three of them! What a dick.

This month's shorts run a full spectrum from the fantastical to the comedic to having a little secret (and the first audience member that figures it out will win a prize)! And the full length? With the infamous Milgram Experiment at its center, this play is terrifying at times while managing to be funny, perhaps unsettlingly so, at others. We cannot wait for an audience to hear it. Doors open at 7, performance starts at 7:30. Show up early to make sure you get food and drink orders in!

As ever, QT is made possible by Producer and High Quality Fella Chad Brown of the Black Buzzard at Oskar Blues. The food is great, the beer is great, the reading is free. You can't go wrong.

ABOUT QUESTIONABLE THEATRICS

Questionable Theatrics' mission is to present new, unproduced plays by Colorado playwrights, providing some of the state's most talented actors to give voice to their words. By presenting these works to an audience of both peers and strangers, we provide the playwright with important insights for the development of their work and create connections with local producers, directors, and artistic directors in the hopes they'll take the "un-" off the unproduced.
