SPARKy Productions: Telluride Playwright Fest & Lawn Chair Movie Nite

SPARKy Productions is gearing up for its 10th year of organizing the summer program of the Telluride Playwrights Festival. An exciting week of two new staged play readings, a one-man show and improv night are all planned during the week of July 21 – 27,2014.


The Playwrights Festival brings working playwrights, actors and directors to town to workshop new plays. This year a comedy, “TONIGHT AT NOON”by Jeff Tabnick, and a political thriller, “AYN & HER SISTER” by Jennie Franks are the two featured productions.

“TONIGHT AT NOON” is a zany comedy about the angst of four 30-year-olds.

“AYN & HER SISTER” tell of a visit by Ayn Rand’s Russian sister to New York in the 1970s.

In addition, Daniel Glen will be performing his one-man show…..

Returning actors include Playwright favorites Richard Cowden and Lori Gardner.
