University of Houston's 10-Minute Play Festival


It's not every weekend that Houstonians can experience more than a dozen world premiere plays at a single theater. On April 5 and 6, however, audiences can take in 14 new works written by University of Houston students and artists from across the country.

You won't need to pack their pajamas for what might seem like a marathon of stagecraft. University of Houston's first 10-Minute Play Festival will deliver condensed productions over the course of two days in the Jose Quintero Theatre (Entrance 16 off Cullen Boulevard). The festival will present seven plays on April 5 with the remaining seven to be performed on April 6.
