The Workshop

Join us for The Workshop, a new play development series in its second year. Last year we had the chance to help Kristin Carlson develop her new play Beyond Reason and this year we are lucky enough to develop two new plays from Colorado playwrights William Missouri Downs and Luke Sorge. William’s play Mr. Rogers - American Terminator will have a public reading on Friday, April 14th at 7:30 pm and Luke’s play Zen and the Art of Profit will have a public reading on Saturday, April 15th at 7:30 pm. Both shows will then have a guided talk-back following the reading with the playwright, director, cast, and audience. Help TRTC be a hub for nurturing new plays and the brilliant playwrights who create them. They are the backbone of our craft.

The Lifespan of a Fact

By Jeremy Kareken & David Murrell and Gordon Farrell

Based on the book by John D’Agata and Jim Fingal

Directed by Renee Prince

Jim Fingal is fresh-out-of-Harvard fact checker for a prominent sinking New York Magazine. John D’Agata is a talented writer with a transcendent essay about the suicide of a teenage boy – an essay that could save the magazine from collapse. When Jim is assigned to fact check D’Agata’s essay, the two come head-to-head in a comedic yet gripping battle over facts versus truth.
