Modern Muse Theatre Presents Regional Premier of 'Reclaimed'
Modern Muse Theatre Company opens the regional premiere of Judy GeBauer's captivating play "Reclaimed" with preview on Friday April 3 and opening Saturday April 4 at 8 p.m. at the Bindery Space Theatre, 770 22nd St in Denver. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased by calling 303-780-7836 or online at modernmusetheatre.com.
Vivien Fielding has been a captive of the Sioux since 1864. She returns to her former life in the white world only to face devastating interrogation and rejection. In an attempt to reunite with her young daughter, Vivien reluctantly becomes a spectacle on the lecture circuit, but only finds peace after returning to the wilderness. This play expertly evokes the character and contradictions of late 19th century America, focusing on one woman's struggle for identity and a sense of home.
The cast includes Gabriella Cavallero, Kevin Hart, Josh Hartwell, Anna Gibson, Luciann Lajoie, Benjamin T. Koucherik, Glen Moore and Kevin Lowry.
Judy GeBauer's plays have been performed at the O'Neill Playwrights Conference, the Long Wharf Theatre, Irish Arts Center, and Philadelphia Festival Theatre. Among her awards are the HBO Writer Award, the Julie Harris Playwriting Award, a Colorado Innovation Award, as well as grants from the Steinberg Charitable Trust and the W. Alton Jones Foundation. She is published by Heinemann Books and Playscripts, Inc. She was a member of the Playwrights Unit at Denver Center Theatre Company, and was that company's playwright-in-residence in the 1995-96 season. Among her plays are: "Reclaimed," "The Hidden Ones," "The Nip and The Bite," "Scottish Mice," "Mrs. Plenty Horses" and "Bobby Sands, MP."
In 2007 Modern Muse commissioned and produced GeBauer's play "Every Secret Thing" for their "The Play's the Thing" series. This series was created in order to explore artists and plays that need to be given a voice and provide a safe testing ground for the development throughout the season of a new and timely work.
