About the Book:

In The Best Ten-Minute Plays 2018, you will find fifty terrific ten-minute plays from the 2017-2018 theatrical season from veteran editor Lawrence Harbison, a man who has spent his career championing new and established playwrights by bringing their work into print. They are written in a variety of styles, some are realistic plays; some are not. Some are comic, some dramatic. The ten-minute play form lends itself well to experimentation in style. A playwright can have fun with a device which could not be sustained as well in a longer play. Several of these plays employ such a device.
