Selected from hundreds of blind submissions, this volume features 12 original short plays that premiered as part of The Collective:10 Play Festival in New York City in September 2015. Also included is one additional play which premiered at the C:10 encore production in December 2015, PLUS a dialogue with the playwrights about their inspirations, the process and these particular plays. The works range from intense drama to absurd comedy, all brimming with truth and action -- a provocative and engaging collection of relatable stories.
These short plays were all workshopped through The Collective, by its ensemble members and associate artists, in direct collaboration with the playwrights. The result is a collection of short plays that represent the spirit of accessibility, inclusion and development that have come to define The Collective.
