Durango Arts Center 10th Annual 10-Minute Play Festival
Beginning in November of each year DAC invites playwrights from around the world to submit original 10-Minute plays. The plays go through a tiered reading process (author names and hometowns are kept anonymous from the judges). The top plays will be performed at a free reading in May where the Grand prize winner will be selected by a panel of judges, and the audience will select the People’s Choice Award. The top plays will be fully produced and performed by local directors and actors at DAC’s Annual Festival in October. The 10-Minute Play Festival is the only one of its kind in the region, introducing new and creative works to our community, through the work of vibrant new voices for the stage.
