About Us

Founded in 1993 as a small workshop group for playwrights, Write Angle Productions soon began presenting it's work at Denver's historic Changing Scene Theater with the popular Colorado Quickies ten minute play festival.  Later in the '90's Write Angle began a monthly "Readings at the Tivoli" series.  In 2000, Write Angle along with co-producers, Chameleon Stage, moved the Quickies, now in it's sixth year to the LIDA Project's garage space on Cherokee Street, and played to enthusiastic sold out audiences.  In the next several years, the Colorado Quickies continued at many different local theater venues including; The Denver Civic Theater, Morrison Theatre Company, Lakewood Cultural Center, Red Rocks Community College, and the John Hand Theater.  Most recently, Write Angle members presented their plays in "Humbug", a 2008 holiday short play festival,  at Denver's Vintage Theater.  Now, in 2011, revitalized with new playwright members, Write Angle continues it's mission of script development and new play production.  Most theatres are developed by producers, artistic directors, or actors, but not playwrights.  We are working to correct this oversight.  The play is the foundation of the theatre, and so, a theatre developed by playwrights seems most logical.

Our members include the following Denver area playwrights.
