You can find fantasy at the bookstore, sci-fi on TV, and horror at the movies, but when’s the last time you saw works in any of the three genres on stage? This new festival from the equally new Benchmark Theatre, which debuted in March, features staged readings of 13 plays, each focused on the fantastic or bizarre. Don’t miss Sunday night’s Maniac Lake—the Friday the 13th–inspired piece by Denverite Jeff Carey is the only work in the curated lineup written by a Coloradan.
