The first phase of the Denver Center’s first Regional Youth Playwriting Workshop and Competition culminated at the Colorado New Play Summit with professionally staged readings of the three finalists’ one-act plays. The staff of the Denver Center’s Education Department has now selected Laurain Park’s One-Sided Fish to be fully staged by Denver Center Theatre Academy students. There will be two performances on June 27 at the Conservatory Theatre.
"Probably most people will have some kind of regret about their school days, and this story is about some of those regrets," said Park, a Korean-born freshman at the Alexander Dawson School in Lafayette. She modestly describes her play as a plain story that explores the thoughts and feelings of a shy girl learning about both assimilation and first love.
