Take Ten II


Formats & editions


A ten-minute play is a blaze of theatrical energy. In this follow-up to their groundbreaking collection Take Ten. editors Eric Lane and Nina Shengold have put together a veritable bonfire of talent. Take Ten 11: More 10-Minute Plays provides a fast-track tour of the current theatrical landscape, from the slapstick ingenuity of David Ives' Arabian Nights to the searing tension of Diana Son's 9/11 drama The Moon, Please, to Susan Miller's luminous fable The Grand Design. This remarkably diverse anthology includes thirty-five short plays by such major American playwrights as Christopher Durang, Warren Leight, Romulus Linney and Donald Margulies. alongside a host of
exciting new voices. Actors, directors, producers and teachers will find Take Ten II an invaluable source of meaty roles for people of every age, ethnicity and gender; lovers of theatre will find it a richly satisfying read. These deceptively short plays throb with life in all its variety: harrowing. hilarious, and breathtakingly vital.
