Since the inception of the Actors Theatre Ten Minute Play Festival twelve years ago, the goal has been to provide an opportunity for new playwrights to have their work recognized and brought to life. For seasoned actors and newcomers alike, we are proud to have created many acting and directing opportunities in our community each year. Actor participation and enthusiasm are key to the success of the program, and we strive to cast a large number of actors of various experiences, ages and types.
This unique selection of plays was selected from national submissions of over 300 ten minute plays. The plays that have made the final cuts are great scripts which couldn't be passed up. Read them and see for yourself!
