The Los Angeles Collegiate Playwrights Festival is a collection of tiny plays, approximately ten minutes each. "Geared toward bringing college playwrights together with industry professionals acting in the Hollywood community" as the program states. But like writing a very good haiku, the short play format generally proves challenges--pretty good skits or very abbreviated versions of what should be much longer works often prove as good as you get. This set of performances however rose above those expectations...
I walked away quite impressed with all five playwrights and with the casts as well as directors. Will be on the lookout for them all.
The Los Angeles Collegiate Playwrights Festival plays Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays at 8pm and Sundays at 2pm until August 25, 2019 at the Dorie Theatre in the Complex, 6476 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood CA 90038.
