Description - Take Ten: New 10 Minute Plays by Eric Lane

The plays that Nina Shengold and Eric Lane have collected in this volume range from monologues to an eight-character farce. They take in the metaphysical slapstick of David Ives's The Philadelphia and the breathtaking ferocity of Dana Yeaton's Helen at Risk, and contain parts across the entire spectrum of age, race, and gender. Eminently producible, ideally suited for the classroom and audition, Take Ten is a marvelous resource for actors, directors, and producers, as well as a stimulating read for lovers of the theatre.
