Ten-minute plays are highly popular with audiences around the world, and are a form of theater that forces playwrights to get the story moving quickly and keep the dramatic action tight. They also let actors showcase their talents by playing multiple roles, and allow audiences to enjoy a broad spectrum of theater in one sitting. Think of it like theater buffet!
Nine plays will be performed, all each 10 minutes long, which include hilarious moments of Greek chorus lines, a murder solved in eight minutes, a woman falling in love with Halloween candy, a man recounting tales of alien abduction, Texan love stories and much more. Audiences are sure to enjoy high-stakes fun and entertainment with plenty of belly laughs.
