Telling a story in 10 minutes

By Special to the Monitor

Los Alamos Little Theatre’s short play festival “8x10 Again” will open Friday.

This production is a follow-up to the successful September 2006 “8x10” festival and will likewise feature eight short 10-minute plays, directed by eight different directors. Five of the plays were written by local playwrights and are being presented on stage for the first time.

The show opens with “Duet for Bear and Dog,” written by Sybil Rosen and directed by Gwen Lewis.

In this comical piece, a domesticated dog meets a wild bear, which leads to a philosophical debate on freedom vs. security.

Following this is a short melodrama, authored by David and Shelia Schiferl of Los Alamos and directed by David.

Titled, “A Short Stretch in Aspen,” it poses the question, “What would have happened if the Eron scandal had occurred in 1890s Colorado?”

Third in the lineup is Santa Fe Playwright Dianna Lewis’ “Primitive Collection,” directed by Sally Cassil.

In this satirical piece, an artist and his wife debate the ethics of his new approach to painting.

Finishing out the first half of the program is “Trace Evidence,” by former Los Alamos playwright Jeff Stewart and directed by Dennis Powell.
