A lot can happen in just a few minutes. Laughter, tears and drama can be produced in just a short amount of time.
This will be particularly true in the Santa Fe Playhouse’s Bench Warmers Short Play Festival. Eight 10-minute plays will capture life’s spontaneity. The festival begins today and runs through Feb. 15. Among the plays that will be featured during this time will be “Stuck,” which was written by local playwrights Robert Benjamin and Elaine Jarvik.
Benjamin’s work will continue to appear in Bench Warmers with a reading of his play, “Plot.”
The play is among the eight plays that will be read from the script Feb. 14-15.
“Stuck” is about a couple going on a first date. Neither of them has been active in the dating scene and for their date, they go on a ride at an amusement park, which gets stuck.
“Plots,” has a much grimmer setting. The play takes place at a grave site, Benjamin said. Two newlyweds, who are in their 70s, are at the grave of the husband’s first wife. It is the anniversary of her death. During this visit, the new bride is surprised and dismayed about what she sees at the grave.
