International 10-minute Play Festival


Bellarmine University in Louisville, KY is proud to announce the return of its International 10-minute Play Festival in March 2016. The festival will run March 16-21 and will consist of 8, fully produced 10-minute plays, performed in repertory fashion.

Last May, Pope Francis issued a letter outlining Catholic doctrine in response to climate change and the need to protect “our common home.” This year, our festival will pick up on the pope’s charge as we are seeking plays that deal with the theme of OUR COMMON HOME. 

We are so pleased to announce the eight plays selected for performance:

  • A Bad Case By Robert Kingsolver
  • Benny & Pearl On The Waterfront By Nancy Gall-Clayton
  • Drop In The Ocean By Allie Costa
  • Eve Of The Vertebrates By Christian Simonsen
  • Exit Cesar Chavez By Steven Young
  • Forbidden Fruit By Patricia Reynoso
  • Hangin’ On The Edge By Cary Pepper
  • Sorting The Trash By Gwendolyn Rice
