10-minute play festival back on BI

Island Theatre’s Ten-Minute Play Festival is back after a two-year COVID intermission.

On Aug. 2 the public is invited to meet the 10 Kitsap County playwrights whose plays have been selected for the 2022 festival. The amateur and professional playwrights will be on stage in person and via Zoom to discuss their plays and take audience questions.

The event is at 7 p.m. at the Bainbridge library.

The 10 plays will be fully staged in four shows Aug. 18-20 at The Pavilion on Madison Avenue on Bainbridge Island. They were selected from 65 plays submitted.

The plays and playwrights are:

• “A Murder Of Crows” by Lee Lawing

• “A Nip In The Autumn Air” by Jeffrey Brown

• “Best Case Scenario” by Dan Rosenberg

• “Hijab” by Catherine Rush

• “Losing Tucker” by Paul Lewis

• “Maisie, Max and Milo” by Maria Viera Beatty

• “Nacirema’s Revenge” by Henry Bacon

• “The End” by Olivia Vessenes

• “The Winner” by Lori Londagan and

• “Vesper” by Miranda Ray.

The all-volunteer nonprofit Island Theatre provides high-quality theater in intimate settings. Its regular schedule includes bi-monthly staged play readings at the library; potluck play-reading dinners in private homes where guests are welcome to read a part; and the festival.

It is supported by donations, Bainbridge Community Foundation, the city of Bainbridge Island Cultural Fund and One Call for All. For details go to www.IslandTheatre.org.
