Playscripts Publishes SEVEN MINUTES IN HEAVEN


Playscripts, Inc. has announced that it has published Steven Levenson's critically-acclaimed play "Seven Minutes in Heaven". This original script is now available for performance licensing through Playscripts, Inc.

Met with tremendous critical acclaim when it was produced at HERE Arts Center in New York City in June 2010, "Seven Minutes in Heaven" won "Critic's Pick" from The New York Times and Time Out New York.

"Seven Minutes in Heaven captures the sound, look and absurd operatic emotions of growing up in the mid-'90s... The play is so real that you almost believe it was written by one of its characters," said Jason Zinoman of the New York Times.

The play, as summed up by Frank Scheck of the New York Post, "...beautifully captures the joys and agonies of adolescence." It's a Friday night in 1995 and Monday morning homeroom is a million miles away. Six over-stimulated, under-supervised high school students are gathered in Margot's basement to meet her mysterious boyfriend from summer camp -- though none of them have even seen a picture of him and he has yet to show up. As the teens keep themselves busy with rounds of party games, the night gives way to stolen kisses, malicious gossip, and broken hearts. This heartbreaking, hilariously real play showcases the absurd and terrible ecstasy of being young in America.
