A Word Nerd Challenge
After sitting through two lousy plays this weekend--four hours of my life stolen by crummy scripts, bad directing and slipshod acting--I'm laying down a challenge to all of you budding playwrights (or just whatever-wrights) out there. Write a 10-line play. It should have a title, dialogue (one character is fine, but more than one is better), a beginning, middle and end. Make it funny, poignant, tragic, silly. I don't care. Just make it original.
There is a prize! From the overstuffed prize closet, I have plucked three fine little blank books, just perfect for journaling or chronicling your "Found" material (notes, ticket stubs, lost pet signs or other amusing detritus). Best three 10-line plays (to be decided by me) will get a prize.
Deadline: Friday February 3. Post the plays in the "comments" section here.
