Paper Cut

a new play by Andrew Rosendorf
directed by Pesha Rudnick

Is courage confined to combat? Kyle has just returned from war a very different man, forced to confront an emotional minefield back at home. Brimming with heart and love, Paper Cut is a raw exploration of the physical and emotional toll on our military, and a reminder that heroes don’t always wear uniforms.

We discover, develop and produce
new american plays.

Based in Boulder, Colorado, Local Theater Company is a nonprofit organization committed to bringing exceptional, timely stories to the stage. In 2018, we proudly employed more than 80 equity and non-equity artists and designers from around the country. We are an Actor’s Equity Association Small Professional Theater and are deeply committed to diversity and inclusion both on and off stage.



A catalyst for creating greater understanding of our world today.

We believe that art in general, and theater specifically, is a catalyst for creating a greater understanding of the most challenging questions facing Americans today. Our programs are designed for audiences to explore culturally relevant stories, be stimulated and inspired to action, all while strengthening our creative community. 

Embedded in our productions and programs is a fierce commitment to meeting a play where it is—and finding the people and resources it needs to tell stories that stay with our audiences long after the show ends.
