Ten-Minute Play Festival to return
- Published: January 30, 2019
The annual Ten Minute Play Festival will return this Friday and Saturday, Feb. 1 and 2, for its sixth year.
This year’s festival will feature seven short plays, with most of them the traditional length of 10 minutes or shorter, and one by YS Theater Company member Colton Pitstick at double the standard length, anchoring the second half of the show. As always, most of the featured playwrights are local, but the festival, as it did last year, will also feature works by playwrights from beyond the borders of the village.

• “Talking Points,” by Steven Hayet, of New Brunswick, N.J.; directed by Miriam Eckenrode Saari, acted by Troy Lindsey, Jeff Murphy, Lara Bentley, Chuck Dunn, Reilly Dixon and Rosemary Burmester.
• “Write the Whimsy You Know,” by Frank Doden, directed by Ara Bel, acted by Doden, Sommer McGuire, Lauren Shows and Adam Zaremsky.
