The Best Ten-Minute Plays 2020

The Best Ten-Minute Plays 2020 $24.99

Larry Silverberg (Editor)

Published by Smith & Kraus

This is the 30th Anniversary edition of exciting new ten-minute plays from Smith & Kraus

The ten-minute play lends itself to experimentation in style and enables a playwright to have fun with a device which couldn't be sustained well in a longer play

And here you'll find thirty exceptional examples of this, written in a variety of styles ...

Some are realistic plays

Some are not

Some are comic

And some are dramatic

But they all add up to an essential Collection for producers looking for high-quality contemporary plays and teachers who need relevant and engaging material for their class work

Last Dance (Barnes)
