It’s always wonderful to see the fabulous hats, creativity and design the ladies of Denver sport at this yearly event to support women directors and playwrights. Due to the lack of female voices in American theater, the DCPA established the Women’s Voices Fund in 2005. This fund helps to commission, develop and produce new plays by women. This has allowed the DCPA to support 28 plays by women, 16 female playwrights and 25 female directors.
Lighthouse Writers Workshop invited author Michael Ondaatje to Denver for their Inside the Writer’s Studio series. Mr. Ondaatje is the author of Anil’s Ghost, In the Skin of a Lion, and many other works of fiction, poetry, autobiography, and screenwriting. In 1992 he won the Booker Prize for The English Patient, for which he also wrote the screen play. This event took place at East High School in Denver, Colorado with a reception following at Lighthouse.
