Gi60: International One-Minute Play Festival to Celebrate 10-Year Anniversary
The annual Gi60: International One-Minute Play Festival, hosted by Brooklyn College's Department of Theater, Screaming Media Productions, and Dean Clough Mills in the United Kingdom, will celebrate its 10-year anniversary by staging 60 of its best short plays from years past, in addition to 100 new and original plays.
The one-minute plays will be brought to life by an ensemble cast of theater students, alumni, and professional guest artists. Brooklyn College, along with Dean Clough Mills, a UK-based business community that includes arts programming, will simultaneously stage the new plays, along with the best plays from previous productions.
>From an annual submission pool of more than 600 plays, this year's selection includes playwrights from Australia, Italy, Los Angeles, and Boston. All plays will be recorded and posted in late August on YouTube and linked through www.gi60.blogspot.com.
Brooklyn College performances will be held in the New Workshop Theater, located on the lower level of Whitman auditorium. For reservations, please call (718) 951-4500, or visit http://depthome.brooklyn.cuny.edu/theater.
Admission is $15.00 regular, $12 for seniors and $10 for students with ID. All proceeds will benefit the Gi60 U.S./UK Collaboration Award, a scholarship given to theater students who embody the spirit of collaboration.
