Oxford’s Ten Minute Play Festival kicks off September 2019. In addition to our workshops, this year’s festival showcases plays from national submissions to our annual writing contest. The contest winners are produced, along with works by respected local writers, in arts-loving Oxford Mississippi, a town beloved for its literary history. At the end of the weekend, we will also award an Audience Favorite prize to the play that garners the most votes. This year’s lineup includes:

  • Ashes to Dust, by Kate Leslie, dir. Kate Meacham
  • Dark Matter, by Donald Loftus, dir. Davis Jones
  • Grief Has Waltzed on my Heart Tonight, by William Boyle, dir. James Barton
  • The Interview, by Patrice Hamilton, dir. Debra Anderson
