Ten Minute Plays

The African American experience is not represented solely by one voice or one style. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL is a platform for talented early-career playwrights of African-American descent to explore new voices, styles and challenging new directions for 21st century performing arts, and move beyond common ideas of what is possible in black theater. THE FIRE THIS TIME FESTIVAL 2011 will feature five staged readings, six ten-minute plays, and a panel discussion on Diversity in Contemporary Theatre.
Featuring The Scorpion and the Fox by Jesse Cameron Alick, The Big Crunch or...(the eternal return) by Christine Jean Chambers, Exodus by Camille Darby, The Bitter Seraph of Sugar Hill by Marcus Gardley, Breakfast by Yusef Miller, and Third Grade by Dominique Morisseau.
