Nomad Playhouse/Maya Productions present:
A Cycle of One-Act Plays in Rotating Repertory
September 28 - October 22
Revolving Door embraces the ephemeral nature of the theatrical art form and of life itself, exploring faith, tyranny, extremism, gender and language in a unique blend of intimate plays produced by Boulder artists at the historic Nomad Playhouse.
This thought-provoking festival celebrates local talent, addressing classic figures, and burning issues of our time. Click on the Buy Tickets buttons below for specific times and ticket cost.
By Oren Neeman, adapted by Ami Dayan and Mark Williams, directed by Jeremy Cole, performed by Ami Dayan.
Conviction, an award-winning off-Broadway hit based on an original Spanish
Inquisition file, sheds light on the struggle to keep faith and identity under extreme
oppression. It is a dramatic blending of a profound history lesson and a no less profound
love story rooted in true events.

Elizabeth I – In Her Own Words
By Carole Levin, directed by Lynn Nichols, performed byTamara Meneghini and Bernadette Sefic
What was Queen Elizabeth I really like? Many scholars have written about the monarch of Shakespeare's time, but what if she were to magically appear before us
today and share some of her important stories of the people and events of her time? What would we see? What would we hear? Grounded in research by leading Elizabeth I
historian, Carole Levin, this captivating dramatization weaves together excerpts from Shakespeare’s cannon and offers an intimate exploration of the queen, her upbringing,
her life, her loves and her connection to the beloved Bard.
