THE TEN MINUTE PLAY
"Brevity is the soul of wit". Hamlet
The ten minute play is becoming an increasingly popular and widely produced theatrical form. It is an excellent way for beginning playwrights to enter the field and for more seasoned writers to experiment with new styles and ideas.
In this workshop, after studying several examples of the form, you conceive and structure your own ten minute play. You then write, perform and receive a constructive critique of your play. The compression of the short play helps you to develop the ability to create vivid and economical characters and plot.
This workshop is for writers of both fiction and non-fiction who wish to improve their skills in dialogue and dramatic structure. Suggestions for production venues will also be offered.
