Welcome to our Featured Play Spotlight. Ten / Two by Lindsay Price is a collection of short ten minute plays for two people that is excellent for classwork or competition.
This collection is a drama teacher’s dream! Ten short two-person plays (inspired by the numbers 10 and 2!) in a variety of themes and lengths.
The plays can to be performed as a group or individually. More flexibility than you’ll ever need. Over three million combinations!
Why did we publish this play?
We wanted a connected scene book – the plays in Ten / Two can be performed individually or together for a full evening of theatre. You could have an entire class working on individual scenes and then put all of the scenes together. The collection is also ideal for student directors because each play is a contained piece.
Why is this play great for online performances?
The framework of the Ten / Two duets will transfer well to an online platform. Each individual play only requires two actors and there are no scene changes within scenes.
1. Why did you write this collection of plays?
I love writing challenges – and to write a whole collection for two actors, that were basically ten minutes in length and explored the concept of Ten and Two in the content of the scene was a fun one!
2. If you could give one piece of advice for those producing the play, what would it be?
These plays are all about relationships. Some of them new, some of them well ingrained. Focus on the characters: why they are together, and what they want from each other.
3. Why is this play great for student performers?
The scenes focus on two characters in a specific, vivid moment. That’s great for students to explore!
