Event Details

This one-night-only production features a sampling of famous poetry, plays and short stories about poetry, and some surprises:

• Profiles of ancient epic poetry, Walt Whitman, Shakespeare’s sonnets, the 19th-century Romantic poets, and the Beat Poets
• Performances of haiku (both Japanese and Western) and limericks (both clean and indecent)
• Staged readings of the short plays “Cobalt-60” by Ross Peter Nelson (inspired by a Mary Oliver poem) and “Poetry 10 Cents” by Bill Thompson
• The short story “In Time” by Carrie Vaughn, about Emily Dickinson’s beloved pet dog, Carlo
• Poetic contributions from One Night Stand Theater regulars Joan Golden and Leroy Leonard

“This is an evening for both poetry lovers and people, like me, who aren’t certain what poetry is all about,” says James O’Leary, One Night Stand Theater’s artistic director.“We’re using the ‘road trip’ metaphor to explain the approach we’re taking for this show: cruising the poetry highway, stopping to take in intriguing sites, and having fun along the way with a car full of great poets and our talented writers, actors, and directors.”

One Night Stand Theater is a Denver-area theater group that has presented one-night-only evenings of theatrical staged readings over the past seven years, each with its own theme. Past performances have featured the Wild West, folk tales, Shakespeare, Hollywood, and plays about war, romance, and the Apocalypse.
