Announcing the 2020-2021 Season!


By William Shakespeare • Directed by Melia Bensussen

Love and other contradictions. Shakespeare’s most beloved romantic comedy features his most delightful heroine, Rosalind, who is banished from the court of Duke Frederick and escapes to the enchanted Forest of Arden, a fantastical place where all are welcomed and embraced. Lost amidst the trees, she finds community and acceptance in this exuberant gender-bending theatrical journey.


By Martín Zimmerman • Directed by Melia Bensussen

The past is always present. Simona’s father is an enigma. Curious about his life in Latin America before moving to the US, she obsesses over his secrets and her thoughts and dreams become haunted by the mystery that is his past. A moving and poetic look at the bond of fathers and daughters, love and sacrifice. From Martín Zimmerman, a writer and producer of Netflix’s Ozark, and the showrunner and creator of the streaming service’s crime thriller, Puerta 7.


By Pearl Cleage • Directed by Susan Booth

In association with Denver Center Theatre Company and Arena Stage
Rage before beauty. Anne and Betty are best friends who return to the United States to participate in an arts festival after twenty-five years of living abroad in creative exile. However, they find that the country is quite different than it was in the ’70s. Drawing on a life of art and activism, playwright Pearl Cleage explores the current political landscape and the generational differences among African-American women with her signature wry humor.


Written and Directed By David Catlin

The monsters within. An eerie evening of ghost stories get spun as Mary Shelley herself breathes new life into her tale of the infamous Victor Frankenstein and his unholy experiment. Along the way, Shelley’s own personal torments emerge to add to this gothic tale of love and horror in this terrifying retelling of Frankenstein.
