Archive for the ‘ Closings ’ Category
April 1 and 2 at 7:30 p.m
From the Aurora Fox Press Release:
K2, the play, is a 75-minute harrowing tale of two long-time friends/mountain climbers (William Hahn and Jude Moran) who are stranded on a ledge at 27,000 feet. After an accident leaves one of the men with a severely broken leg, the two survive the night only to confront the fact that they have lost several pieces of important climbing equipment and a safe return to base camp seems unlikely. Their fight for survival spawns several discussions which expose the philosophical differences between the two men as they taunt and tease about the merits of each other’s lifestyle and face their own mortality.

SAUSAGE. ENLIGHTENMENT. QUACK.
A thrill-seeking Guru enlists the help of the Bearded Lady and her deranged theatre troupe to expand Buddhism for a western audience in the Department of Redundancy Department’s (DRD) ‘Ten Buddhist Tales’. As the Guru wallows deliciously deeper into their psychoses, the theatre freaks attain their own epiphanies, and find their ducks.
“We think that’s the plot of the play,” says director of directing Antoine Valot, “and that’s a little distressing because the script we wrote wasn’t supposed to have a plot.”
This avant-garde, ecstatic, freakish play is the first major production by a group born of the Bug Theatre’s long-running, genre-defying Freak Train program, where randomness blossoms. The DRD honors its freakish roots in a show that’s wild, raunchy, bloody, and above all wild, raunchy, and bloody. Fittingly, the show premieres on Friday the 13th of March and runs through Sunday May 5th.
“This play is to the Magna Carta what a carwash is to a banana peel, ” says Kenn Penn, the DRD’s resident-artist-in-residence, “It is not recommended for children.”
Please go to http://www.bugtheatre.org or call the BugLine at (303) 477-9984 for details, reservations and a calendar of performances. The Bug is located at 3654 Navajo Street, Denver, CO 80211.

The Bug Theatre is supported in part by the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) and Breckenridge Brewery.
The Ten Buddhist Tales at the Bug plays through Sunday, April 5.
