Local Theater Company: Great Bends

April 27, 2023 @ 7:30 pm



Mainstage Reading of Great Bends by Sarah Léo Powers, directed by Pang Yuan Yuan

Great Bends is presented in collaboration with the Department of Theatre and Dance at CU as part of our playwright mentorship program. The play explores the profound grief of lives lost and relationships strengthened in the face of climate change. Throughout one night in Great Bend County, Kansas, relationships are tested through debates regarding career choices, childbearing, and ethics, in preparation for an unpredictable future. In this dystopian future not too unlike our own, sacrifice, love, and the bends we take for one another may be what saves us all.

Followed by a post-show discussion. 

Local Theater Company Members, Fierce Fund, Patrons, and Contributing Members –  log in to the Dairy’s website to access your complimentary or discounted tickets.

What is Local Lab? In short, Local Lab is a festival of new theatrical work. Local Theater Company discovers and develops world-premiere plays, small-cast musicals, hybrid and devised theater pieces through Local Lab. Selected project creators are invited to Boulder, CO in April 2023 and provided the resources to conduct a workshop of their material, offering them a forum to explore, develop and strengthen their work in collaboration with other theater artists. At the conclusion of the workshop, the material is presented to you, our community, followed by a curated post-show conversation that moves new work toward full production. All Access Festival Passes are available HERE
