Maps of Heaven

Map of Heaven by Michele Lowe is being premiered by The Denver Center Theatre Company. Lena Gates is a painter, who is preparing for her first showing; she is working with Rebecca Marks on the project. Her husband, Ian, who is a medical doctor, is going through a period of burn-out in his profession. It appears that he has missed placed a woman's mammogram, which delayed her diagnosis and possibly lead to her death.

The woman is Rebecca's sister. The show is canceled, and Lena is forced to rethink her relationship to her husband and the direction of her painting is moving.

The actors' performances were all good. They were able to develop the tension between the characters as it was need need in the plot of the story. It was a very good performance.
