We’re playing outside the theatre with our next Off-Center adventure, featuring all original works by Colorado-based artists
Bite-Size brings you five short plays with bookish twists performed environmentally in and around BookBar, an independent bookstore and wine bar in the Tennyson Street Arts District. There is no better way to see a variety of local playwrights and performers in one place. Whether you’re a theatre geek, a bookworm, or on the hunt for an offbeat night out, this evening will leave you eager to crack into a fresh hardcover and dream up some tales of your own.
Bite-Size is the next out-of-the-box adventure from Off-Center, designed to sweep you off your seat to connect with art and fellow audience members on a new level. It’s a 360-degree experience where you will journey through a variety of spaces in and around BookBar, encountering each new play in a super intimate group of just 10 audience members!
Free with admission
Nov 2, 3, 9, 10, 16 & 17 9:15pm

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO
Helpful tips to get the most out of your Bite-Size experience
Wear Comfortable Shoes: Because of the immersive nature of this experience, audiences will walk between plays and may need to stand for some of the performances.
Travel Light: As you move through spaces big and small, backpacks and purses will interfere with your experience. We encourage you to travel light – but don’t forget your wallet so you can grab tapas and drinks at the bar.
Accessibility: Bite-Size audience members will travel short distances to various performance spaces throughout the BookBar campus. To request an accessible experience, or for any accessibility questions, please contact us at least 14 days prior to your desired date.
How were these plays selected?
“This was an incredibly competitive process with 213 eligible submissions from 101 Colorado zip codes. Every script was read by at least three different readers in a blind process that ensured the works were judged on their own merits, with the identity of the playwright hidden.”
– Off-Center Curator Charlie Miller
