What happens in one minute?  Let's see how many plays from here, we can get there.

Post your piece in Playwrights Gym - Feedback, and let's hone these babies.  When you are writing a one minute play, every single word must forward the plot...and there can be a plot...and/or define something of one of the characters.

Read below for submission details.
