Every 10 minutes, a new play begins!

Join us at St. Germain Stage for an evening of ten 10-minute plays by 10 playwrights, featuring seven dynamite actors as part of the 2013 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival. Playing an extended 3-week run!

“…a wonderful blending of both sides of this genre; comic or poignant dramatic précis with a contemporary smartness, each of which has a twist that is delightfully evident at first or that unfolds more gradually, ending with a kick that leaves the audience universally murmuring in surprised satisfaction. It hits the spot so many times and in so many different ways…” ~Rural Intelligence

“This is an opportunity to visit with the playwrights of the future. It is a most enjoyable opportunity and one not to be missed.” ~Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus

“entertaining…You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll learn about religious differences during the American Civil War, the role of foam in an emergency plane landing, the philosophy of furniture, and the inner life of sock puppets. There’s nothing not to like here.” ~Berkshire On Stage
