Bits and Pieces! A collection of 10 minute plays and monologues.
Not long ago, a ten-minute play would have seemed like a gimmick, or a comment on our culture’s diminished attention span…. a theatrical sound-bite. But due to the growth of national play festivals, new author play festivals, and one-act festivals, the ten-minute play has become a recognized art practiced by not only new writers but by seasoned playwrights like Christopher Durang, David Mamet, Sybil Rosen. Officially the ten-minute play made its debut in 1977 at The Actors Theatre of Louisville during the Humana Festival of New American plays. Producing Director Jon Jory called the genre “American theatre’s haiku”, sticking “like glue in the mind because the viewer remembers the whole play.”
Producing an evening of ten-minute plays allows Hawkeye students to participate in the drama club based on their availability. If a student is free to rehearse multiple evenings, with different cast members he or she can be cast in multiple shows. Whereas a student with limited time can still experience the thrill of being onstage in a complete piece but be part of a larger evening working to entertain the audience.
