Summit Soliloquies: Video interviews with playwrights

by John Moore | Feb 07, 2014

"Summit Soliloquies" is our video series leading up to the 2014 Colorado New Play Summit. Here, playwrights past and present talk about writing, the Denver Center, the Summit and more.

Day 8: Kirsten Greenidge, whose "Zenith" will be read at 3:30 p.m. today (Feb. 7) in the Ricketson Theatre. It's about a wife and mother  who buys fully into the American Dream until, for reasons that escape her loved ones, she throws it all violently away.

"I feel a lot of great energy from Denver and the Denver Center," Greenidge tells us. "Everyone loves the Summit. It’s a welcoming place. There’s not always places around the country where you can feel really safe and taken care of while you work. And I think that’s something that makes this place very special."
