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.
Performances: August 2018
All performances are at 8 pm except Sundays, which begin at 3 pm.
