NU Theatre presents Short Play Festival

In Upcoming Events, by , on January 20th, 2015

From Jan. 23 through Jan. 31, NU Theatre’s annual Short Play Festival makes for a fascinating dose of theater — and a great entertainment bargain. Three cycles of ten-minute plays written by various playwrights will be presented over two weekends. Comedies, dramas, and everything in between—our debut of 19 student directors produces a smorgasbord of professionally published ten-minute plays.  If one production is not to your taste, you only have to wait ten minutes before the next one.  (With some plays, adult situations and language may be an appropriate warning to anticipate.)

The Short Play Festival will be on stage in the Leary Theatre within the Elizabeth Ann Clune Center for Theatre, Clet Hall, at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 23 (Cycle A) and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 24 (Cycle A); on Saturday, Jan. 24, at 7:30 p.m. (Cycle B) and 2 p.m. on Sunday, Jan. 25, (Cycle B); and at 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 30 (Cycle C) and 2 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 31 (Cycle C).
