Kim Robards Dance Theatre Hosts Free Reading of I KNOW THAT YOU LOVE ME, Aug. 9
Paragon Theatre is proud to present the second reading of the 2010 season of The Trench: Paragon's New Play Development Series. On Monday, August 9th, Paragon Theatre Company will host a free staged reading of I Know That You Love Me, by Broken Gopher Ink at 7PM at Kim Robards Dance Theatre.
I Know That You Love Me is fourteen scenes between men and women that examine multiple facets of the same stone via drama, comedy, song, and monologue. These snapshots are savage and hilarious, disturbing and familiar. I Know That You Love Me is a vaudeville of the sexes and a zoetrope of the heart.
Broken Gopher Ink is a team of playwrights whose quirky and vicious "comedies" have been produced in theatres throughout the US and the UK. Starting in the 1980s, Broken Gopher Ink began a series of off-Broadway shows, which later became known for their nihilistic comedy and anti-theatre sensibility. Claiming that all they wanted to be were "the Sex Pistols of playwriting," Broken Gopher Ink followed a non-recognition ethic, which demanded focus on their work rather than on the playwrights themselves. Rumors abounded in theatre circles about their identity, but it is generally agreed that they are based in Colorado, and that there are from two to four members at any given time.
I Know That You Love Me is directed by Shelly Gaza and features Barbra Andrews, Suzanne Favette, Jeremy Make and Warren Sherrill.
This FREE reading will take place on Monday, August 9 at 7:00 PM at Kim Robards Dance, 1387 S. Santa Fe.
The Trench: Paragon's New Play Development Series is designed to give Colorado playwrights the opportunity to develop and improve their writing while gaining vital exposure to a larger audience. All Trench readings are free and open to the public and are followed by a mediated talk back and refreshments.
