A showcase of student-produced drama, the 13th annual Ten-Minute Play Festival takes place this weekend at the Leeward Community College Theatre. This year’s theme is X-Y Chromosome but the plays themselves cover everything from first-time loves to failed marriages, the creation of humans, the procreation of flies and the specter of death.
“Many of the directors and actors are fresh out of the acting classes at Leeward, and are full of new ideas and a thirst for creation,” notes student Jonathan Reyn, director of The Unwanted by Walter Wykes.
Other productions include Edward Albee’s modern classic The Sandbox, directed by Leeward drama instructor Betty Burdick and an original piece called The Price of Cheap Love, written and directed by Reb Beau Allen, resident playwright at Leeward Community College.
The plays will be presented in two parts, at 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Cost is $5 at the door. Call 455-0549 for more information.
Discretion is advised due to mature subject matter.
