This event is to help encourage local writers and directors of all skill and experience levels to practice their art in a low-stakes, low-commitment and safe environment. The evening will consist of ten plays lasting no longer than 10 minutes, in a variety of styles. 

Admission for the event will be a $10 suggested donation to benefit the education programs at the Branson Regional Arts Council.
