The house has been there forever, and the elder resident is important to the neighborhood. It really has a spiritual significance, says Chris Wiger, media contact at the Denver Center. While writing Radio Golf, Wilson was actually dying of cancer. Its like he lived long enough to finish the play, and then he passed on. Although its a little shorter and funnier than the other nine, what really makes this play different is that its more about legacy. I think Wilson was thinking about his own mortality at the time. These plays are certainly his legacy.
Radio Golf opens today at 7:30 p.m. at the Space Theatre in the Denver Performing Arts Complex; tickets start at $36, and performances continue through April 25. For details, call 303-893-4100 or go to www.denvercenter.org.
