Her intention is to continue to facilitate discourse to get people talking about the death penalty, whether theyre pro- or anti-, says Joan Bruemmer, who directs the play. From Naropa Universitys Buddhist-inspired perspective, its talking a lot about compassion, even compassion for people whove done terrible things. The play itself is pretty similar to the movie, except that its a little bit more expansive in terms of addressing the victims families and giving them a voice.
The production opens tonight at 8 p.m., with a second show tomorrow at 8, in the Performing Arts Center on Naropas Arapahoe campus, 2130 Arapahoe Avenue. Admission is $10 for the general public, free for all past and present Naropa community members with ID. For more information, go to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-245-4798.
