This is our second main stage production in our new black box studio theatre. Our black box is an intimate setting with seating for 30. Audience members will be entertained by two one-act plays: Spreading the News and In the Shadow of the Glen. Both plays were written in the early 20th century and have familiar life issues that are still relevant today.

Spreading the News is a one-act comedy written by Lady Gregory which satirizes the way that people are happy to believe the worst about their neighbors and tend not to think before they talk. She points out the ways in which gossip leads to misunderstanding and even violence.

In the Shadow of the Glen is a one-act play written by JM Synge. Set in rural Ireland, an elderly farmer feigns death to prove his young wife as an adulterous, gold-digger. A tramp, seeking shelter from the storm, soothes the young wife by offering a life of freedom.

The Evergreen Players is a 501(c) 3 non-profit organization producing 10 shows per year in the foothills. Established in 1950, the Players’ mission is to create professional-quality theater to inspire, engage and entertain. The Players’ mailing address is P.O. Box 1271, Evergreen, CO  80437.
