Now Playing Onstage in Denver - Week of 1/12/2014 THE ECLIPSE OF LAWRY
Spark Theater
Part myth-making, part absurdist exercise, part political allegory and part youthful hell-raising, this story of three cowboys, whose plot to steal the moon, is a wild and woolly one. A bad of Brecht, a pinch of Freud, a handful of surrealism and a cup of Marx Brothers craziness makes this a rich ethnic broth that's politically piquant. Directed by Phil Luna and Written by local playwright Gwylym Cano. Gwylym is a talented artist with a unique voice. Spark chose this script because we are committed to the recognition of Denver playwrights and bringing local voices to the Spark stage. This play is fresh and enjoyable. The mix of slapstick and philosophical thought is sure to elicit a reaction. The characters of Humphrey, Gezebell, and Dogwould are wonderful guides through this crazy magical story and we know our audience will fall in love with them.
