For the ninth consecutive year, Spectral Sisters Productions presents its Ten-Minute Play Festival. Submissions are solicited from writers all over Central Louisiana and are evaluated by a pair of outside readers. Those individuals rank the plays according to a complex set of criteria that determine the top eight (or nine) plays for production.
Subject matter ranges from bombings in Liege, Belgium to blind baseball announcers. Comic plays dealing with online dating alternate with plays about the tragedy of Alzheimer’s Disease. The diversity of subject matter is only matched by the quality of the writing, acting and directing, all by locals of Central Louisiana.
