Cary Playwrights' Forum & OdysseyStage Host 10-Minute Play Festival
OdysseyStage Theatre teams up with Cary Playwrights' Forum to present a 2nd-annual festival of ten-minute plays this summer: NC 10 by 10. Each group is producing five of the plays, with all ten being shown at each performance. Running first at The ArtsCenter in Carrboro July 11-14, the show moves to The Cary Theater for its second weekend, July 18-20.
The festival patterns itself on the popular 10 by 10 in the Triangle that ran at The ArtsCenter from 2001 to 2016. We sent out a call to all the playwrights in North Carolina and selected the best 10 minute plays amongst our entrants. 10 different directors are each taking on one of the 10 scripts, with the shows being cast separately by each theatre company. Several actors will play multiple roles which include everything from a Genie in a bottle to Don Quixote to Henry VIII to a mysterious woman of Fortune.
