Four Play

When: Oct. 15-17 2010

In college, I got myself involved in a performance where 15 of us were broken into groups of five, given a $75 prop budget and told to return in three weeks with an original short play in which we'd direct and act. Never mind that I got about two hours of sleep nightly for a month (and don't ask me about the rented bear costume) — it was great, um, fun. Some local actors, writers and directors are poised to find that out for themselves this weekend with a similar project, Four Play. The Manitou Art Theatre (1367 Pecan St., themat.org) held auditions Oct. 6-7, and participants were given only 44 hours to write a short play; four were then selected from the batch; then folks only had four more days to fully produce the work for your viewing pleasure. Catch it at the MAT today at 2; tickets are a creativity-rewarding $20. (Much cheaper than other foreplay on the market.) — Matthew Schniper

Price: $20
