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.

Wow - 12 actors in a 60-second play? That'd be something to see!

Okay.  Can it be done?  Let's see.

I'm up for the challenge of a 12-character one minute play.

Writing now.

I found the post in Notices, but no deadline.  I found their website and it had all the same information, but no deadline.  Sooooo, I sent them an email and I'll report back when I hear from them.

Thanks,
Edd
