“Every secret of a writer’s soul, every experience of his life, every quality of his mind, is written large in his works.”
The culminating event in DAC’s 10-Minute Play Celebration, this festival has become one of Durango’s favorite theatre events. Featuring winners and finalists of the DAC 10-minute Play Contest, come to DAC Theatre to support original works and celebrate new, emerging and professional voices in live theatre! This fast-paced theatre evening offering a grab-bag of comedy and drama is not to be missed!
DAC received 121 submissions from playwrights–emerging and professional – from across North America, as well as England and New Zealand for the 7th Annual 10-Minute Play Contest.
The top five finalist plays were presented as staged readings on Friday, June 2 in the DAC theater with local performers. Judges selected the Grand Prize Winner for an award of $500 and the audience voted for a People’s Choice Award of $100.
Additionally, DAC is proud to spotlight a local writer as part of the festival, this year by Patty Templeton, who also writes for DGO Magazine.
