On this years menu is Great Wall Story, a play based on the true tale of three Denver reporters who, on a slow news day in 1899, made up a story about the Great Wall of China being torn down, and An Extraordinary Demonstration of Nikola Teslas Most Recent Discoveries, a Buntport play about people trying to posthumously locate the plans for a death ray that the inventor supposedly conceived.
But in order for it to work, the needs those audiences to attend and to react and thats where you come in. The whole thing is free: Just reserve your seat ahead of time (and do it soon, because they fill up). As DCTC spokeswoman Genevieve Miller points out, Its a chance to say I saw it first.
You can also, if youre particularly zealous, opt for a full summit pass ($195), which guarantees you seats at all of the plays (full productions included) and access to adjunct activities, including a multimedia workshop and panel discussion. The New Play Summit takes place today and tomorrow at the Denver Performing Arts Center; for a full schedule, tickets and information, visit www.denvercenter.org/summit.
