These three plays were selected from more than 100 scripts submitted to the Festival by invitation. The themes of these three plays serve loosely as inspiration for the groupings of 10-Minute Plays and for the creation of our three Artistic Blind Dates. You’ll find the thematic grouping color-coded throughout the Festival calendar and website.
