as Theatre of NOTE, my beloved Los Angeles theatrical home base, has sent out a call for ten-minute plays on the most preposterous theme imaginable: “Someone else’s loss is my chocolatey goodness” – I have shelved my objections and am passing along this fact to the blog at large. I hate to be disparaging about any opportunities for playwrights, but this one has to be viewed in the light of an opportunity best missed. Although, as a friend and I were saying, if you recast it as “One man’s meat is another man’s poison,” you might survive.
Regardless, if you have a ten-minute play on hand about, I don’t know, something, you might send it to NOTE. Their actors are the best in the city, and consequently, the best in the country. I’m not biased, I’m just right.
One man’s really bad theme could be another man’s short play.
