2015 Summit Spotlight video: Theresa Rebeck's 'The Nest'

Theresa Rebeck’s The Nest is about a bar that is on its last legs, “but it’s got very beautiful bones inside it,” she says. Here’s our inside look at the making of this ripping comedy that is a featured reading at the 2015 Colorado New Play Summit.

For the small-town regulars at The Nest, life is an endless series of jokes and over-the-top conversations that liven up the neighborhood watering hole … until a well-heeled woman walks in and tries to buy the beautiful antique bar. The cast includes Carly Street, John Procaccino, Brian D. Coats, Laurence Lau, Carine Montbertrand, Victoria Mack, Kevin Berntson, Jessica Love and Royce Roeswood.
