Ten by Ten

Ten, ten-minute, two-character, one-act plays, same characters, different combinations, one story.  The Bio Age grinds on; we know only truce in the unending war first waged by our grandparents’ grandparents.  The Prime Minister’s emissary makes a deal with an “exporter” to set up a meeting with the enemy’s ancient Secretary of Protocol while two enemy soldiers patrol the border.  Everything turns on stopping a great unending biological experiment.  There is money to be made, deals to broker, families to honor, love to secure, and a fragile armistice at risk of shattering.  Will this truce end in peace, or in war?
