"Summit Soliloquies" is a week-long video series leading up to the 2014 Colorado New Play Summit where playwrights past and present talk to you about writing, the Denver Center, the Summit and more. Part 1: Three-time Pulitzer Prize finalist James Still, whose "Appoggiatura" is a scheduled 2014 reading. Followed by a violin-playing Vivaldi, a charming but bogus Italian tour guide accompanies a widow and a bereaved middle-aged man who both mourn the same person while her granddaughter questions her future. "Appoggiatura" is a sun-drenched romance about love, loss, and a broken family re-living the past and healing its heart in Venice. "It's important for me to get in close, to sit close, to sleep close, to dream close to my play," Still tells us. "That's what working at the Summit might give my play." A Denver Center commission. The Summit is Feb. 7-9. For ticket information, go to http://www.denvercenter.org/buy-ticke.... Video by John Moore.
