Carefully chosen readers read, and score, all submitted plays. The top scoring eight plays are then professionally produced before audiences including three adjudicators (all theater professionals) who choose the Best Play and Runner-up, relying heavily on the written words.
From the 106 entries from playwrights throughout Florida for this Seventeenth Annual Ten-Minute Play Festival, these eight finalists are slated for production June 9-12 at the Jane B. Cook Theatre, FSU/Asolo Center for the Performing Arts:
Ancestry by Connie Schindewolf (Bradenton)
Happy Birthday, Leonard by Walter Thinnes (Fruitland Park)
One-Way Mirror by Don Salvo (Celebration)
Sign Here For All That Remains by Greg Burdick (Lakeland)
Six Feet Apart by Lyle Landon (Bradenton)
Smart Pizza by Meryl Rachlin (Celebration)
Sowers by John J. Kelly (DeLand)
Youth for Dark by Keith Whalen (Sarasota)
Playing it Safe: Masking in the Cook Theatre is not compulsory (although we recommend it), but masking is currently required when entering the FSU/Asolo Center for the Performing Arts and when passing through the lobby to the Cook, following Broadway’s rules. This information will be updated if any changes occur.
