The T Plays - Now a Tradition
Mill 6 Collaborative seems to have hit the sweet spot when it came up with its playwriting challenge called The T Plays.
Tomorrow night marks the opening of the third annual run of this unique mini-festival.
Seven Boston-based playwrights boarded the MBTA last Saturday morning, and by that night they had to have a draft of a ten minute play to hand into the festival organizers.
Within a week, the plays are staged with some of Boston's best fringe directors overseeing some of the Hub's talented actors.
Wondering what it's like for a playwright to be under such pressure? John Greiner-Ferris, one of the participating writers, chronicles the experience on his blog.
For those who have never attended before, I would advise getting tickets early The Factory Theater is a very small venue.
