"I do find the 10-Minute play a challenging but rewarding framework. I’ve written my share of 10-Minute plays which have been horrible. Those which have turned out to be good I feel have been worth the labor and thought.” - Sam Graber

The short one-act play is the perfect way to work on an idea you've always wanted to see onstage. This Seminar by Marvin González (18-19 Many Voices Fellow), will explore the structure and impact of the one-act play, with a special focus on the 10-minute play. The short play is the perfect way to hone your skill and explore new ways of writing.

This is the Seminar for you if:

  • You are itching to theatrically express a wild concept
  • You want to know the basic "rules" of the one-act play
  • You are looking for new ways to practice writing

PostScript: In 2016, Marvin's 10-minute play Prostheses Bound, was selected for the Theatre Masters’ Take Ten: National MFA Playwrights Festival and Aspiring Playwright Competition.
