ten minute plays

About the Ten Minute Play Festival

We started this festival August 2014 as the 6x10 Festival.  Since then, this festival has just grown dramatically.

We have added additional performance days and in 2017 decided to produce 10 of the plays since we have such an overwhelming number of scripts submitted.

In 2018 we received over 400 scripts from 35 states and 7 different countries!

 

2018 Festival
