Description

“Gary is a terrific teacher: kind, inspiring, engaging.” -DGI student


Love or hate them, the ten-minute play isn’t going anywhere. Because so many theatres have found producing an evening or festival of ten-minute plays an excellent resource for sharing so many unique voices in the theatre, the number of production opportunities has increased 300% over the last five years. With this relatively new genre of playwriting comes a perennial question: What makes a good ten-minute play? This course will explore those elements that make engaging theatre of any length, and then discover how those elements apply to the ten-minute play genre. This ten week course will allow each writer to complete several drafts of one or two ten-minute plays.

Gary Garrison is the author of the seminal Perfect Ten: Writing and Producing the Ten-Minute Play, and the sequel to that book, A More Perfect Ten. In the spring of 2014, the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts created The National Gary Garrison Ten-Minute Play Award for college and university students. His ten-minute plays have been featured regularly at the Boston Theatre Marathon, City Theater in Miami, and StageWorks of Hudson - New York, as well as a number of venues throughout the country. A collection of his ten-minute plays, Verticals and Horizontals, was published by Original Play Publishing in the spring of 2015.
