The Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA) is proud to announce full casting and creative team for the Theater Company's World Premiere production of Human Error by Eric Pfeffinger.

Madelyn and Keenan are NPR-listening, latte-sipping, blue-state liberals, while Heather and Jim are NRA-cardholding, truck-driving, red-state conservatives. After an unfortunate mix-up by their blundering fertility doctor, Heather becomes pregnant with the wrong family's embryo. Now the two couples face sharing an uproarious nine-month odyssey of culture shock, clashing values, changing attitudes and unlikely - but heartfelt - friendships.

The Chicago Tribune said Playwright Eric Pfeffinger's Accidental Rapture tackles "the gaping communication gap between red America and blue America, liberal humanists and the conservative right." His hilarious 2017 Colorado New Play Summit debut is no different.

The World Premiere production of Human Error will feature Larry Bates (The Goodman Theater's Ah, Wilderness!) as Keenan, Joe Coots (Kinky Boots first national tour) as Jim, Kimberly Gilbert (Round House Theatre's The Book of Will) as Madelyn, Wayne Kennedy (Off-Center's The Wild Party) as Dr. Hoskins, and Marissa McGowan (Broadway's A Little Night Music) as Heather.

The production, which closes out the Theatre Company's 2017-18 Season, will be directed by Shelley Butler and include designs by Lisa M. Orzolek (Scenic Designer), Sara Ryung Clement (Costume Designer), Charles R. MacLeod (Lighting Designer), Jason Ducat (Sound Designer), Sarah Lunnie (Dramaturg), Elissa Myers Casting/Paul Foquet, CSA (Casting), and stage management by Christopher C. Ewing (Stage Manager) and D. Lynn Reiland (Assistant Stage Manager).
