A Virtual Ten-Minute Play Festival
The Winters Theatre Company (WTC) is presenting a podcast production for their second annual Ten-Minute Play Festival.
First produced in early 2020, right before the pandemic shelter-in-place began, the inaugural Ten-Minute Play Festival featured eight plays with storylines ranging from astronauts in love to a young man coming out about his love of opera music.
Ten-Minute Festival organizers Ana Kormos and Jim Hewlett wanted to continue the festival in 2021, but were concerned that the pandemic would not allow for an in-person theater event, so they reinvented the festival as a podcast. Script submissions were solicited, and 99 scripts arrived from across the U.S. as well as Australia and New Zealand.
A podcast of the eight scripts selected will be available through Sunday Feb. 2, on the Winters Theatre Company website, winterstheatre.org.
