Fall theatre in Colorado: Time to confront issue of racism

by John Moore | Sep 10, 2017

Video playlist: Check out our "10 Most Intriguing Plays and Musicals" for fall 2017, in the words of featured actors from each production.


The most divisive social issue of the summer has unified the local theatre community going into the fall.

By John Moore
Senior Arts Journalist

If nothing else, the white supremacists in Virginia last month moved the conversation about the festering racial divide in America from the margins to the mainstream. And this fall, Colorado theatres are moving it from the margins to the mainstage.

Curious Theatre. Appropriate. Sean Scrutchins. Photo by Michael Ensminger. It seems the most polarizing social issue of the summer has unified the local theatre community. Area companies are confronting the issue this fall the only way they can: By telling stories that will instigate the kind of conversations that hopefully lead to new understanding.

Jamil Jude, director of Curious Theatre's Appropriate - the story of a contemporary Arkansas family that discovers racist artifacts in their patriarch's possessions - said he hopes the play "can push audiences, especially white audiences, into difficult conversations.

"We name systemic injustice and white privilege as institutions that have profited many and disenfranchised many more. We hope white allies will empower themselves to speak to their families to work to eradicate these systems and further advance equity." (Read our full interview)
