Nina Shengold & N Sheilgold & E Lave & Eric Lane

Published by Vintage Books

A ten-minute play can be a streak of theatrical lightning - it doesn't last long, but its power can stand your hair on end

This splendid anthology includes 32 of our finest playwrights who hone their skills on a form that has been called the haiku of the American stage

The plays that Nina Shengold and Eric Lane have collected in this volume range from monologues to an eight-character farce and are eminently producible, ideally suited for the classroom and audition

They take in the metaphysical slapstick of David Ives's The Philadelphia and the breathtaking ferocity of Dana Yeaton's Helen at Risk, and contain parts across the entire spectrum of age, race, and gender

Eminently producible, ideally suited for the classroom and audition, Take Ten is a marvelous resource for actors, directors, and producers, as well as a stimulating read for lovers of the theatre

A marvelous resource for teachers and students of drama, as well as a stimulating read for lovers of the theatre

Contributors include - John Augustine, Cathy Celesia, Laura Cunningham, Joe Pintauro, Mary Sue Price, Megan Terry, Jose Rivera, Romulus Linney, David Mamet, Jane Martin, David Ives, and many others
