I’m so thrilled to introduce you to Bradley Hayward’s brand new collection of ten ten-minute plays called Sixteen in Ten Minutes or Less. The main characters are sixteen and the plays look at the joys and sorrows of being that age.
The lives of seven teenagers become intertwined in this humorous and oftentimes bittersweet collection of ten minute plays. From extracting a gummy bear out of a new set of braces to coping with bullies, these characters share their innermost hopes and fears with each other, ten minutes at a time. As the audience drops in on these intimate moments, they will come to understand that being sixteen isn’t always easy.
What makes Sixteen stand apart from other ten-minute play collections is that it’s a full-length play in disguise! The ten-minute plays stand on their own, but they can also be performed in sequence (for a running time of about 100 minutes) as the characters reappear throughout. We get a glimpse of the characters in the ten minute plays, but a much richer picture emerges when they’re performed together.
As always, we have free sample pages for you. Have a look here. You’re going to love it.
