NW10: Into the Cybersphere! will stream four live plays each evening, followed by a brief artist talkback.

The complete festival will also be available to stream on demand February 25-28, 2021. Our cohort of playwrights will kick off the final festival weekend with a digital roundtable discussion on Thursday, February 25 at 6:30pm. 

Scripts were reviewed and selected blind, without readers having knowledge of the writer's name or location. The final line-up was decided by this year's guest judge, NYC-based playwright/director Kareem Fahmy.

The Northwest 10 Festival of 10-Minute Plays goes digital in February 2021, celebrating its 13 th installment with a series of live-streamed performances. This year’s festival is titled NW10: Into the Cybersphere, a nod to this year’s all-digital format. "Livestream theatre allows us to explore new boundaries and approaches to theatre making and engagement,” says Eric Braman, one of the NW10 producers. “We are excited to see how playwrights creatively utilize the assets of digital theatre to tell dynamic stories. The best part? Theatre in the cybersphere is accessible theatre! This is a great opportunity for playwrights to access a huge, new audience across the digital world."

The 2021 NW10 Festival is produced with support from the Lane County Cultural Coalition and the Oregon Cultural Trust.
