PlaySlam! 8

Filed under: Theater — Tags: , , , — Lisa Pepin @ 12:43 pm

The 8th annual PlaySlam! came to the ArtsCenter this weekend. The audience was treated to an evening of competition as playwrights competed for fame and the $100 prize.

Here’s how it works: Playwrights each submit two very short plays, 1-3 minutes long. Actors come in at 5 p.m. and spend a hectic three hours with their playwrights until showtime at 8 p.m. Each playwright presents a play in the first round, and then the audience votes for its five favorites. Votes are tallied, and the top five writers present their second plays in the second round. The audience votes again for its favorite, and the playwrights field questions from the audience while the final tally is counted. Then, the winner takes all!

These plays may be short, but they are still massively entertaining. In anticipation of the event, I will be posting one publicity photo each week until the festival. No captions though.
