Summer 10 Minute Play Festival

Summer 10 Minute Play Festival

The Portland Ten Minute Play Festival is a seasonal collaborative event created by Monkey With a Hat On. The festival features nine locally written ten minute plays. Each play features different writers, actors and directors - many people are involved.  The festival is a seasonal opportunity for Portland artists to share moments.  It's also an opportunity for the audience to see a wide range of stories in one night. It's a pretty sweet, fun, festival atmosphere.

We started the Ten Minute Play Fest because we wanted there to be inexpensive, fun theater where we could involve a wide range of different types of artists. None of us are professional 'thespians'. We are writers, waiters, cooks, bike messengers, city workers, teachers, coffee shop workers, and everything in between. When we first started the fest, we thought it would be a yearly festival. However, since there has been so much support in both artists and audience, we do the festival seasonally. It's a festival of stories, and is a heck of a time.

ALL AGES (some f* bombs and sexual innuendo). DOORS OPEN AT 6:00.

For more information about becoming involved, check out the website.
