The Northwest Ten Festival of Ten-Minute Plays returns in 2017 for the ninth year running, continuing on its mission to become the premiere ten-minute play festival of the Pacific Northwest. Selected submissions will be produced as a part of the Northwest Ten Festivalat Oregon Contemporary Theatre in Eugene, March 17 - March 26, 2017.
The title of this year’s show, “Northwest Ten: Number 9,” not only recognizes the festival’s ninth anniversary but also refers to the iconic Beatle’s track “Revolution 9.” Seizing on this connection, the producers are asking playwrights to include one line from a Beatles song in their plays. “We thought we’d have some fun with this,” said NW10 co-executive producers Connie Bennett and Paul Calandrino. “It’s easy to insert one line from a Beatles lyric in any play. And it will be a kind of intriguing game for the audience to pick out the lines during the performance.”
