Regional Premiere of HANDLER opens January 29

In the rural South, present day, Geordi has just been released from prison. He and his wife, Terri, a member of the Holiness Way Church, struggle to re-build their marriage after several years of separation and the death of their daughter. One night in service, as rousing singing, dancing and praying takes the congregation into ecstatic celebration, Geordi handles snakes for the first time and is dealt a deadly bite. Three days later, before the astonished eyes of the congregation, Geordi resurrects! What happened to Geordi on the other side? Who gets saved? Who gets forgiven? A haunting story of love, fear and faith.

Presented by DragonFly Arts, this is the Regional Premier for “Handler,” written by American playwright and screenwriter Robert Schenkkan. Directed by Jeremy Williams.

Final Weekend! Gemma Wilcox Presents 52 Pickup and Shadows in Bloom (Take 2)

Two plays exploring the ins and outs and ups and downs of that turbulent and tender ride we call intimate relationship.

52 Pick Up was voted "Best of Fest" and was at sell out hit show of the 2008 Boulder Fringe Festival. 52 cards in a deck. 52 scenes about a couple's relationship. The title of each scene is written on a card. At the start of the show the deck is shuffled and tossed in the air. The actors pick up the cards one at a time, which determines the playing order of the scenes. No two shows are alike! Or at least, it is very unlikely!

Shadows lurk, jealousy seethes, plants talk, seeds grow in Shadows in Bloom (Take 2). Gemma Wilcox takes the audience on an adventure through the life of Sandra and her complex relationships. Out of the shadows and onto the stage Wilcox transforms seamlessly from male to female, from kid to crustacean, from flora to fauna in the most compelling tale yet. Boulder premiere!
