“As Artistic Director, I have a vision of expanding our palette of work, and this season clearly represents our commitment to that growth. The 2014/15 season because of this stellar collection of upcoming plays: each takes us on a theatrical journey that explores the resiliency of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity—a bedrock of great storytelling throughout the ages, but in these plays it is rooted so vividly in our modern world." - Producing Artistic Director Chip Walton

ALL THE RAGE

With select weekly performances of THE TRICKY PART
Written and Performed Martin Moran
Directed by Seth Barrish
September 6 – September 28, 2014
Previews September 4 - September 5

Broadway veteran and Colorado native Martin Moran wrote and starred in Curious’ acclaimed 2004 production of The Tricky Part. During the run of that show, he was asked this question: where was the anger over his boyhood trauma? All the Rage is a globetrotting quest for the answer, spanning from Manhattan to the Rockies to Johannesburg, South Africa. The people Moran meets along the way—his estranged
stepmother, a guide who can’t read maps, and an African refugee seeking asylum in the US—help him as he charts his own course through rage and compassion.

With select weekly performances of THE TRICKY PART, currently available only to Curious Subscribers:

Crafted with disarming humor and candor, The Tricky Part is a riveting coming-of-age through the eyes of one boy who was forced to confront religion, sexuality, and human trespass. It is a universal tale of how we’re all bombarded with choices between good and evil, and of how tricky it can be to choose. Presented as a limited weekly engagement, The Tricky Part is a chance to experience the first of Martin Moran’s award-winning one-man shows.

Featuring Curious Artistic Company Member Dee Covington

After Sara Fine’s latest emergency room visit, she returns to her apartment to find that the light bulbs are burnt out; there’s yet another leak in the roof; the fish are dead; the cat’s gone AWOL; and her blind, elderly father is poised and waiting to browbeat her ride home, a friendly TSA agent named Tom. Some people have all the luck, but thanks to a 22-year-old curse, Sara’s hasn’t been so great lately. This World
Premiere is a gleefully dark comedy about love, aging, airport security and how just one little win can put you back on top.

In the world of San Pere—a town suspended between myth and reality—the song of the women is both plaintive and powerful. Oya, San Pere’s brightest track star, can’t outrun the choices she makes. This seductive, intoxicating prequel to The Brothers Size tells the story of a young woman who must either match life’s grueling pace or be trampled by it. In the Red and Brown Water, the opening chapter of The Brother/Sister Plays, weaves music, legend and dreams together into an ecstatic tapestry of the Louisiana bayou.

THE BROTHER/SISTER PLAYS: THE BROTHERS SIZE

By Tarell Alvin McCraney
Directed by Dee Covington
July 11 – August 1, 2015
Previews July 9 - July 10

Featuring Curious Artistic Company Members Laurence Curry and Cajardo Lindsey, with Damion Hoover

Two brothers, the Louisiana bayou, and West African mythology swirl together in this unforgettable theatrical event that will leave you breathless. Even though Oshooshi Size is out of jail, he's hardly free. In this taut, pulsing and playful drama, two brothers walk the line between law and liberty, locked in a fierce tug-of-war for their own souls. "The greatest piece of writing by an American playwright under 30 in a generation or more," writes The Chicago Tribune. The Brothers Size is a rhythmic exploration from one of the
country's most exciting new voices and a soulful journey into the complexities of brotherhood.
