ATCA heads to Denver New Play Summit in February

The winter gathering of the American Theatre Critics Association will be held in conjunction with the New Play Summit held at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts, Feb. 10-12, 2012.

It’s a return visit to the summit, where a small group met in 2010.

Details are still in the works, but the summit will be held Feb. 10-12. Those intending to join us should plan to arrive in Denver in time to register by 12:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 10 and to see the first reading at 1 p.m. Events will end in time for you to catch a 3 p.m. flight out of Denver on Sunday, Feb. 12.

We’ll have registration costs and hotel information coming in a few weeks, but the center is helping us to keep costs down and will assist in finding affordable lodging for the weekend.

The weekend includes five play readings over the three days, plus the world premiere of Lisa Loomer’s “Two Things You Don’t Talk About at Dinner” on Friday night and the world premiere of Samuel D. Hunter’s “The Whale” on Saturday night.

A panel also is a possibility, and there will be a Playwrights’ Slam after the Friday evening performance.

Registration also will include several meals.

We hope you will be able to make plans to join us. Details will be coming as soon as they are available. In the meantime, if you have questions, please contact Jay Handelman at or administrator Barry Gaines at for more information.
