7:30pm Mainstage Reading of Great Bends by Sarah Léo Powers, directed by Pang Yuan Yuan
Great Bends is a play exploring 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, child-bearing, 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. 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

*only available to day pass or all-access pass holders
