Local Playwright's Work Featured in Staged Reading in the Mile High City


In a free-association kind of segue, more news involving local writers and Colorado:

Boise playwright Robert McAndrew's play John Doe #2 (for which he won the $2,000 Peterson Emerging Playwright Competition put on by Catawba College of North Carolina and a Silver Medal from the Pinter Review Prize for Drama) is one of five full-length plays that have been chosen to receive a staged reading at the Western Region Playwrights Showcase in Denver, held August 12 through 14.

John Doe #2 explores the infamous and devastating bombing of the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City in April of 1995.
