This week on Denver stages, you can experience the lives of a couple in love and trapped in an asylum, a chatty family at a birthday dinner, or four men in the muddled-up, comic world of a group home. Here’s where to snatch up tickets.

Germinal Stage, Echoes
73rd Avenue Playhouse
May 13 through June 12
7:30 p.m. Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
2 p.m. Saturdays, May 14 and June 11

Germinal goes inside the minds of a couple in love in an asylum for Echoes, a drama by N. Richard Nash (The Rainmaker) that features their make-believe world where the Big Brother character of a silent psychiatrist takes notes. Is it reality or a metaphor? That’s something you'll have to decide for yourself. The production stars Diane Wziontka, Don Ryan and Austin Millard in the abstract roles, and begins with three discounted preview performances on May 13, 14 and 15.

TCL has fun with Alan Ayckbourn’s Time of My Life, which revolves around a family birthday dinner in a London restaurant. That sounds simple enough, but all hell breaks loose as the ensemble pulls every skeleton out of the family closet in a time-shifting mess of human interaction.

Firehouse heads into summer with Tom Griffin’s The Boys Next Door, which follows four developmentally disabled men — a doughnut fanatic, a man who fancies himself a scholar, a hyperactive ringleader and a schizophrenic who believes he is a golf pro — who live in a communal home as they navigate through life and reveal their hopes and dreams along the way.
