“Theatre as Sanctuary” presented by Phamaly
Phamaly’s Fall production series, Theatre as Sanctuary, will feature three staged readings that examine and interrogate the idea of sanctuary – what turns a space into a sanctuary and whose rules dictate the sacredness of that refuge. Each staged reading will take place at a different sanctuary, both traditional and nontraditional, within the Denver community and looks to engage a different population who calls that place home.
