Six 10-Minute Plays

This weekend ending up being a theatre weekend. Friday night brought me to Hollywood to Theatre of Note’s 10-Minute Plays. The theme for these late-night one-acts was Someone else’s loss is my chocolatey goodness.

Instead of passing out actual tickets everyone received two pieces of chocolate along with a miniature program. Dark or milk? I chose dark.

Then came the one-acts, exploring such diverse scenarios as renting an apartment, baring one’s pain, meeting persons of interest at a bus stop, breaking up with your drug dealer, a disgruntled child at a birthday party, and a woman named Anne who’s a pirate.

Overall it was an interesting evening. Some of the acting was wonderful, and some of it not so wonderful. Some of the writing was better than average, and some of it was mediocre.

But hey, it was a night out at the theatre, and the chocolate was good.
