LALT shorts offer mix of emotions

-A A +A

By Heather Hughes

Nov. 8 was opening night for the Los Alamos Little Theatre production, “8x10.” Eric Bjorklund and John Gustafson are co- producers of the “8x10” production.
“8x10” was created in a creative format where there are eight 10-minute plays performed one after the other in total. There is a 10-minute intermission after the first four 10-minute productions.
“The 8x10 format is ideal for getting new people involved in theatre, and for community theatre, that is our life blood. Full productions can be a huge time investment. A short 10-minute play is a good way for people to get experience directing, acting, or even writing,” Gustafson said.
The first short production, “Love Rules,” written by Robert Benjamin, opens to a speed dating scene with an awkward man with the name of Arthur, played by Eric Bjorklund, and stern women with the name of Ruby, played by Pat Beck, who are trying to engage in a conversation. The story turns emotional where the characters begin to relate over their own personal grieving.
