Sopris Theatre Company at Colorado Mountain College will bring an encore performance of “The Other Place” a one-act play by Sharr White, to CMC Spring Valley on Sept. 28 and 29.
The company won five awards when it presented the play at the Colorado Community Theatre Coalition’s 2018 Colorado Theatre Festival in July in Salida, including first place show, three outstanding achievement awards and one excellence award.
The story takes place at a beach resort in Cape Cod, and is “so cleverly constructed,” Variety reports, “that the nature and depth of the problem isn’t revealed until the last shattering scene.” Sopris Theatre will partly replicate the festival competition by setting the stage in front of the audience in 10 minutes, performing the production in 60 minutes and holding a talkback session with the audience about the play at the conclusion of the performance.
Curtain for “The Other Place” will be 7 p.m. Sept. 28-29, at the New Space Theatre, Calaway Academic Building, Colorado Mountain College Spring Valley, 3000 County Road 114. Admission is free, though donations are welcome and will go toward supporting Sopris Theatre Company moving on in the national festival cycle of the American Association of Community Theatre in June 2019 in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.
