Theater 29, where five Colorado playwrights have the freedom to create, collaborate, develop, and produce the plays they want to see on stage.
Meet the Local Playwrights running the show in Denver, Colorado.
Lisa Wagner Erickson
Founder of Theater 29 and founder of the Lulubird Project, Lisa Wagner Erickson has been a semi-finalist for PlayPenn, Landing Theatre's New American Voices, and the KCACTF 10-Minute Play Award. Her plays have been developed and/or produced by the Lulubird Project, the Edge Theatre Company, And Toto too Theatre Company, Manhattan Theatre Source, Kennedy Center American College Theatre Festival, Stickball Productions, and No Strings Theatre Company, among others. She holds an MFA in Creative Writing for Stage & Screen from Lesley University and is a member of the Dramatists Guild.
The Lulubird Project is a collective committed to questioning norms, rules, and conventions via thought-provoking theatrical art that is imaginative, inventive, and (like life) slightly absurd.
Founder and Artistic Director of Pandemic Collective, Rhea Amos has written, created, and produced over 16 successful plays and theatrical collaborations in the Denver area. Her plays, including Bloodbath, K: Rise and Fall of the New York Club Kids, Spring Sacrifice, and Yurei, have established Pandemic Collective as Denver’s premiere horror theatre company, creating unique horror theatre pieces that are highly infectious and compelling.
The Pandemic Collective is a non-profit 501(c)(3) theatre company dedicated to infecting the masses through horror theatre. By engaging artists and audiences across all mediums, we seek to collaborate as a cultural force to rouse outrage and fear in hope of social change.
ELLEN K. GRAHAM
Founder of Feral Assembly, Ellen K. Graham writes plays, screenplays, and narrative nonfiction. A Denver native and a graduate of the University of Chicago, she has been a finalist for the Shakespeare’s Sister Fellowship, Clubbed Thumb’s Biennial Commission, the O’Neill National Playwrights Conference, and the Global Age Project. Her work has been produced in Columbus, Ohio; New York City; and in Denver, where she has worked with many theatre companies, including And Toto too, Benchmark, Buntport Theater, Pandemic Collective, the Edge Theatre, Paragon, and the Denver Center Theatre Company. She is a co-founder of Shocking Beyond Belief! Films (“The Sword of Truth Behind the Shield of Entertainment”), and a member Dramatists Guild of America.
Feral Assembly is not a theatre company. We have no season, no board, no budget. We just want to tell stories on stage and in the studio that engage a diverse audience.
Founder of Mr. Vulfran’s Carriage, Tami Canaday’s plays have been performed in the U.S., Canada, and Japan. Her literary work has been featured in The Best Stage Scenes, The Best Women’s Stage Monologues, The Good Ear Review, Young Women’s Monologs from Contemporary Plays, and Singular Voices. Her plays have been performed across the country on stages including the Left Theatre, Changing Scene, Luminous Group Theatre, Source Theatre Company, and the Producer’s Club. She was dramaturge and contributing writer for Bingo Boyz: Columbine, which received the Denver Post’s Ovation Award for best new work. Count Down to Zero Theatre commissioned and produced her play, Uncle Rooster.
mr. vulfran’s carriage
Mr. Vulfran’s Carriage is dystopian theatre where feverish American road maps lead to skewed journeys and unexpected destinations.
