Description: Again this year, Smith and Kraus combined its two annual ten-minute play books into this one volume, divided into two sections: Plays for Two Actors and Plays for Three or More Actors. Now, you can get the best ten-minute plays produced during the 2009-2010 theatrical season all in one book! In this volume you will find a plethora of ten-minute plays, culled from hundreds received. All have been produced successfully. Some have even won awards. These plays are written in a wide variety of styles. Some are realistic, some are not. Some are comic (laughs); some are dramatic (no laughs). There are a few plays in this book by playwrights who are fairly well-known, such as Don Nigro, Carson Kreitzer, Elaine Romero, Bridgette A. Wimberly, Richard Vetere and P. J. Gibson; but most are by terrific new writers you never heard of, playwrights destined without a doubt to become far better known when their full-length plays get produced by major theatres. And you read their work first here! Plays for Two Actors Plays for One Man and One Woman Goat by Don Nigro Gunning for Life by William Borden High Speed Disconnect by Chris Widney Jesse by P. J.
