10×10 New Play Festival at Barrington Stage
The 10×10 New Play Festival is back at Barrington Stage Company, under the leadership of Artistic Director Alan Paul. Every 10 minutes a new play begins, 10 times. So 10 plays for 10 minutes each. You will laugh one minute and cry the next.
The plays have been such a hit that the performances go beyond the 10×10 Upstreet Arts Festival through March 10.
Thursday-Sunday with matinee and evening performances at the St. Germain Stage at the Sydelle and Lee Blatt Performing Arts Center at 36 Linden Street.
The 10X10 New Play Festival cast features 10X10 veterans Matt Neely, BSC Associate Artist Peggy Pharr Wilson and Robert Zukerman. Additional 10X10 casting will be announced at a later date.
Directors for the 10X10 New Play Festival are BSC Artistic Director Alan Paul and returning for his eighth year, Matthew Penn (BSC’s Judgment Day, Typhoid Mary). An Emmy-nominated director (Law & Order), Penn is co-Artistic Director of the Berkshire Playwrights Lab in Great Barrington.
The creative team includes Peggy Walsh (costume design), Marcus Kearns (scenic design), Lucas Palweski (lighting design) and Nathan Leigh (sound design). Renee Lutz is Production Stage Manager. BSC casting is by McCorkle Casting (Pat McCorkle, CSA; Rebecca Weiss, CSA).
