2nd Annual Philadelphia One-Minute Play Festival

This just in: I will have two plays in the 2nd Annual Philadelphia One-Minute Play Festival: an evening of live theater about life in Philadelphia today, with two minutes of pure Drew!

Showtimes are Sunday August 3rd, Monday August 4th, & Tues August 5th, 8PM at:
InterAct Theatre Company, 2030 Sansom Street, Philadelphia, PA 19103
Tickets are $20 and available at interacttheatre.org, or (215) 568-8077

The assignment was to write about life in Philadelphia today, and the plays are grouped more or less topically. One of mine is in a cohort relating to public school woes, the other, with LGBT matters. The playwrights represented are a cross section of Philadelphia writers. I've read the ones in my confederacies and there are some sharp ones! I admit, I had been skeptical about what could be done, theatrically, in 1 minute--till last year, my friend Joy Cutler sent me hers to read: terrific, small but potent, like peppercorns. Because I'm under the influence of James Joyce these days, I wrote two small epiphanies based on moments I had witnessed or participated in around town, one on a coffee shop, the other in a workplace restroom. I look forward to seeing what the rest of the writers cooked up...
