KU thespians to stage 10-Minute Play Festival

Sunday, March 30, 2003

Kansas University's William Inge Memorial Theatre Series will cap off its 2002-2003 season with the 10-Minute Play Festival Tuesday through April 6 at the Inge Theatre in Murphy Hall.

Performances are at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday-Saturday and 2:30 p.m. April 6. Ten-minute play festivals are something of a phenomenon that have taken the American theater world by storm, said Joy Richmond, Houston, Texas, doctoral student and co-production manager for the festival.

"From New York to Washington, D.C., to Louisville, KY, to the Midwest, and throughout the West Coast, these festivals of 'shorts,' as they have come to be known, offer an exciting evening at the theatre," she said.

Here's this year's lineup:

Tickets are $12 for the public, $6 for students and $11 for seniors and can be purchased at Murphy Hall, 864-3982; Lied Center, 864-ARTS; SUA, 864-SHOW; and online at www.kutheatre.com.
