Miners Alley Playhouse announced its next show of the 2021 Season will be The Treasurer, written by Max Posner.

The Treasurer runs July 16-Aug. 7 with in person, and streaming ticket options available. Join a Denver man known only as ‘The Son’ on his wild bike ride to hell in one of the most-acclaimed Off-Broadway plays of 2017. We’d all like to believe that when the time comes to step up and care for our aging parents, we’ll be up to the responsibility. But what if that mother abandoned you when you were 13, and your inheritance now is the financial and emotional burden that comes with her return to your life? The Treasurer is a non-stop, darkly funny and sharply intimate story that explores the hell of a guilty conscience.

In an effort to fulfill its mission to provide opportunities for actors, directors, writers, designers, and technicians to gain valuable experience in a positive and supportive environment and get paid a living wage, the majority of our Miners Alley’s season will showcase local playwrights and their new works.

In-Person tickets for The Treasurer are available starting June 1, online at minersalley.com/the-treasurer/ or by calling 303-935-3044 now. Pricing for limited in-person seating and On-Demand is based on a “Pay it Forward” pricing model. Preview performances are July 8 and 9
