In this episode of the OnStage Colorado podcast, host Alex Miller catches up with four of the playwrights who had readings of their work at the Denver Center Theatre Company’s annual Colorado New Play Summit.

Interview subjects include Jessica Kahkoska, whose comedic and mystical play In Her Bones is set in Southern Colorado; Alma by Benjamin Benne, which focuses on the perils of being an undocumented immigrant in the Trump era; Hotter Than Egypt by Yussef El Guindi, a comedic drama about two couples in a pressure-cooker situation in Egypt; and Reclaiming One Star by Suzan Shown Harjo and Mary Kathryn Nagle. Playwright Nagle talks about the historical underpinnings of this drama about Native Americans fighting what they think is the racist name of a well-known NFL team.

Also, listen to the podcast interview with LM Feldman, whose play Another Kind of Silence, was also featured at the Colorado New Play Summit.
