Short Cuts 2020 Online Live!

The Ten Minute Play Festival ONLINE LIVE - no recording, no do-overs

6 plays - 10 minutes each - 1 fast paced show

This year ONLINE LIVE!

No recording,  no do-overs. You watch as it happens, just as you would in the theatre.

A company of 31 playwrights, directors, designers and actors collaborate on this fun, fast paced festival.

You will see six ten-minute plays and a unique take on land acknowledgements.  One play in Spanish with English subtitles.  You will see actors, coming from their livingrooms, in Saskatoon, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal.

And don’t worry – you will see more than a bunch of talking heads.  Our directors and designers are having a ball figuring out how to use the technology to tell their stories in a whole new way.  Doors close and a bunch of new toys are there to discover!  It is a steep learning curve for only two weeks of rehearsal but everyone is digging in and the creative juices are flowing.
