BITE SIZE:

AN ANTHOLOGY OF MICRO THEATRE

NAMED WESTWORD'S BEST IMMERSIVE

THEATRICAL PERFORMANCE! 

The rules were... it had to be written by a Colorado resident, no longer than 15 minutes and related to books. This was the gauntlet that Denver Center for the Performing Arts' Off-Center threw down to Colorado playwrights. 

 

 

Chosen from a pool of 200+ submissions, five short plays were at the center of a first-of-its-kind showcase in Denver: an evening of experiential micro theatre produced by DCPA Off-Center, and staged in tiny spaces at northwest Denver's beloved indie bookstore, BookBar. A compilation of original works featuring storylines ranging from quirky to momentous, Bite Size includes the five performed micro plays plus five more of the judge favorites: 

A Pocket Full of Dandelions - Kristen Adele Calhoun

Holy Couch - Edith Weiss

Marginalia - Jeffrey Neuman

Outside the Room - Grapefruit Lab, Theatre Artibus + Larry Mitchell

Toxoplasmosis - Sean Michael Cummings 

Something to Read at the End of the World - Maureen Biermann

The F Word - Claire Caviglia

The Missing Piece - Christina Miller + Addie Levinsky

The Side of the Room - Dakota Hill

Malum - Ashley Rice 

                            With poems by Denver poet, activist, and speaker Theo E.J. Wilson!  

This evocative anthology is both a must-read for theater buffs and a delightful memento for those who enjoyed the performances in person.
