With so many talented playwrights right here in the city of Colorado Springs, it’s only appropriate that they find plentiful opportunities to present their work, from local play festivals to staged readings. One such opportunity, Thespiana, returns to the stage this weekend for its third annual event, showcasing Colorado Springs playwrights with rehearsed, staged readings of their short plays. With styles ranging from comedy and drama to selections from a full-on musical, audiences can look forward to seven new works by eight writers who live right here in our own community. Mark and Lauren Arnest will present excerpts from their new musical Iron and Gold, Warren Epstein will star in his one-man play Borscht-Belted, and Judith McKay will tackle the process of playwriting itself in her Temptations of a Playwright, alongside works by Sue Bachman, Phil Ginsburg, Chuck Cabell and Jeff Schmoyer.
