Description

A More Perfect Ten is a revision of Gary Garrison's pioneering book on writing and producing the 10-minute play, and it is now the most authoritative book on this emerging play form. The 10-minute play has become a regular feature of theatre companies and festivals from coast to coast, and Garrison has distilled the advice of many of those people who had been instrumental in promoting the ten minute play for the last few years. Replete with advice and tips on creating the successful 10-minute play, and cautions for avoiding the pitfalls, this new edition also includes addresses for the biggest and most important 10-minute festival opportunities, new sample 10-minute plays and questions for thought and discussion, and sample layout templates for laying out the play for submission. The savvy playwright at any level of skill can use this little book to great advantage. Plus Gary Garrison is warm, funny, irreverent, and essential.show more

Review quote

"Gary Garrison s plays are simply the best short plays around. We beg him every year to put something in our Boston Theater Marathon, and every year he outdoes himself with plays that speak to our foibles, our complexities, and always, always our humanity. It's no wonder he has written a how-to book about it-he's the master!" Kate Snodgrass, Artistic Director, Boston Theater Marathon/Boston Playwrights' Theatre"show more
