The Kenmore Quickies: As If Theatre Company announces First Annual Short Play Festival

Monday, March 25, 2019


As If Theatre Company is pleased to announce the first annual festival of short plays, The Kenmore Quickies; eight prompted short plays written, directed and performed by local theatre artists.

Each year, eight local playwrights will be given a specific prompt from which to write a ten-minute play in a four-week timeframe. The festival will be a weekend of performances of all of the plays, with a winning play chosen by the audience.

This year the prompts will be pulled from the Kenmore Mural Project (KMP), created by Gaul Culley and Staci Adman, located at 7304 Bothell Way NE – on the St. Vincent de Paul building. Each playwright will be randomly assigned a portion of the mural as their specific prompt.

All writers, directors and actors will gather in early May, when each playwright will be randomly assigned their specific section of the mural, and directors and actors will be assigned to writers.

From there, the writers will leave with their prompts to write their 10-minute plays. After the playwrights deliver their work, the directors and actors will bring them to life for The Kenmore Quickies on July 26-28, 2019. The winner of the Audience Favorite Award will be announced after the Sunday performance.

Dates/ times: Friday and Saturday, July 26 - 27 at 7:30pm. Sunday, July 28 at 5pm. All plays will be presented at each performance.

All tickets are $20 and on sale now HERE.

Interested playwrights should apply by submitting a writing sample (preferably comedic) of either a short play or an excerpt from a full-length play, by April 12, 2019. Submissions can be made through As If Theatre’s website.
