Firehouse Theater Company presents
“Crimes of the Heart”
by Beth Henley
Directed by Jim Landis
April 1 – April 29, 2017
Firehouse Theater presents “Crimes of the Heart” April 1 – 29 at the John Hand Theater/Colorado Free University, 7653 East First Place in Lowry. Performances are on Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m., Sunday matinees at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, April 15 at 2 p.m. (no performance Easter Sunday April 16).
The three Magrath sisters are reunited in Hazlehurst, Mississippi to await news of the family patriarch, their grandfather, who is living out his last hours in the local hospital. Lenny, the oldest sister, is unmarried at thirty and facing diminishing marital prospects; Meg, the middle sister, who quickly outgrew Hazlehurst, is back after a failed singing career on the West Coast; while Babe, the youngest, is out on bail after having shot her husband in the stomach. Their troubles, grave and yet, somehow, hilarious, are highlighted by their priggish cousin, Chick, and by the awkward young lawyer who tries to keep Babe out of jail while helpless not to fall in love with her.
Jim Landis has cast Julie Kaye Wolf (Lenny), Allison Learned (Meg), Genevieve Price (Babe), Victoria Pace (Chick), Austin Millard (Barnette) and Mike Martinkus (Doc).
“Beth” Henley is an award-winning American playwright, screen writer, and actress. Her play, Crimes of the Heart won the 1981 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, as well as the 1981 New York Drama Critics’ Circle Award for Best American Play, and a nomination for a Tony Award. Her screenplay for Crimes of the Heart was nominated for an Oscar as Best Adapted Screenplay. Her first six plays are set in the Deep South: two in Louisiana and four in Mississippi, where she grew up. Henley has stated that growing up with three sisters was a major inspiration for her play Crimes of the Heart. She adapted her 1984 play, The Miss Firecracker Contest, into a 1989 film starring Holly Hunter entitled Miss Firecracker.

Tool to Gather Critical Community Input on Safety of Denver Streets
DENVER – Do you think cars drive too fast down your street or know of a sidewalk blind spot where cars cannot see you? Maybe you know a place where the bike lane could use more protection from traffic or does not connect through to your destination? Crash data only tells one side of the story, and we want to hear from Denver residents where they think our streets can be made safer.
“To create mobility freedom in our city, our people must feel safe no matter the mode of transportation they choose,” Mayor Michael Hancock said. “The city and state have considerable crash data, however, feedback from our residents regarding where they believe safety on our streets can be improved is just as important. This survey will help Denver broaden our insight into the safety of our streets and neighborhoods.”
Denver residents and visitors are encouraged to visit denvergov.org/visionzero to take the map-based survey, select the location of their feedback, and add it to the map before April 30, 2017. Responses from the Vision Zero map survey will be used collectively by the city’s Vision Zero Technical Advisory Committee to identify patterns in behavior and street design to help set priorities for the Vision Zero action plan.
