Ten Minute Play Festival
The Ten Minute play is a play that begins and ends in - you guessed it - 10 minutes.
A short form of playwriting used to showcase playwrights, directors, actors, and designers, the Ten Minute Play Festival allows artists and audiences to have a full production experience within a relatively short time.
At Malone, we use the Ten Minute Play form to showcase student directors and actors. In the Ten Minute Play Festival, there are as many as 25 plays performed over two nights and more than 100 students participate. The audience is packed and excitement fills the air as they wait in anticipation to see roommates, friends, and family members act and direct original works for the very first time!
