Two World Premieres Announced for 2024/25 Theatre Company Season

Denver Center Theatre Company, the regional producing theatre arm of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (DCPA), is thrilled to announce two world premiere productions for the 2024/25 Theatre Company season.

After audiences were buzzing about The Reservoir by Denver local Jake Brasch (our tempest, How to Draw a Triangle) at the 2023 Colorado New Play Summit (CNPS), it will receive a world premiere co-production launching in January 2025. The world premiere will open in Denver, continue at Atlanta’s Alliance Theatre—and end at the Geffen Playhouse in Los Angeles.

Alongside The Reservoir in winter 2025 will be another audience-favorite from the 2023 CNPS, The Suffragette’s Murder by Sandy Rustin (Clue, Broadway’s The Cottage). The Suffragette’s Murder is a dramatic comedy that pairs the history of the women’s rights movement with the hilarious hijinks of a murder mystery who-done-it.

“It is a joy to be part of the Colorado New Play Summit and witness new works in their early stages of development,” said Artistic Director Chris Coleman. “I am thrilled that next season the Theatre Company will include rising playwright Jake Brasch with his powerful production The Reservoir, and playwright Sandy Rustin who wrote the adaptation of Clue—one of the most produced plays in 2022—premiering her hilarious play The Suffragette’s Murder in Denver.”

The full Denver Center Theatre Company season will be announced in early April when subscriptions go on sale. Single tickets will be available at a later date.
