Ten Minute Play Festival 2019 lineup unveiled

The selected plays to be produced as part Island Theatre’s 2019 Ten Minute Play Festival have been announced.

The 10 works chosen, all written by Kitsap County playwrights, will be fully staged in three shows later this year, plus a pay-what-you-can preview performance as well, at Bainbridge Performing Arts.

Officials said the slate of plays is the result of blind judging by three theater professionals in collaboration with the Island Theatre board of directors. Play submissions were limited to playwrights who are residents or have a significant family, work or historic connection to Kitsap County.

The winning plays this year are: “Alexa” by Jeff Fraga,“Best Defense” by Jennifer Pippin-Montanez,“Dancing with Orion” by Diane Walker,“Devolution” by Connie J. Bennett,“Hijab” by Catherine Rush,“The Lady from Out of the Past” by Maria Viera Beatty,“One Last Chance” by Dan Rosenberg,“The Raven in the Woods” by Tamarah Rockwood,“The Rose Bowl” by Robert Craighead, and “Trans-Matters” by Eve Palay.

This, the eighth annual festival, will be staged at BPA in August.

Auditions for actors are open to all, and will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday, April 29 and Friday, April 30 at Rolling Bay Hall (10598 NE Valley Road). Visit islandtheatre.org for reservation information.
