Take Ten 2018: National MFA and Aspiring Playwrights Festival

February 11, 2018 @ 8:30 pm - February 13, 2018 @ 10:30 pm UTC-6

Join Theater Masters for an exciting, fast paced evening of 10-minute plays by the next generation of American playwrights! This year’s Take 10 Festival will feature six writers from some of the top MFA playwriting programs in the country in addition to two local High School writers from The Roaring Fork Valley. We have matched the playwrights with nationally recognized directors who include: Theater Master’s Executive Artistic Director Joseph Ward, Founder and Artistic Director of New York-based Crowded Outlet Theater, Wes Grantom, and Artistic Director of The Water Tower Theater in Addison, Texas Joanie Schultz. Although an Aspen native, the Take 10 Festival will be Joanie’s professional debut in the greater Aspen area.

In addition, playwright David Auburn, winner of the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, is joining us as this year’s special guest!
