From Calgary: Ground Zero Theatre
10 Minute Play Festival
At the Vertigo Playhouse Theatre
- Tues. Jan. 3 - 7:30 PM - $20
Kinda like a theatre sport blipvert for the Laff-A-Lympics.
You would think that by now, seven editions later, actors and directors would have this thing down. But this little exercise in concision from the Rodeo’s festival-within-a-festival wing–in which theatre aspirants are granted 10 minutes to knock our socks off, but only 24 hours to prepare–offers a proven mix of anxiety and merriment. There will undoubtedly be the usual amount of sweating, coffee overdose, ego incineration and, if all goes right, snappy dialogue.
Please don’t heckle, though. They’re extremely sensitive.
