About the 10×10 Minute Play Event
This event has been running since 2010 and has become a fixture in the calendar of the Cork Arts Theatre. It has grown in popularity each year since its inception. Originally devised as a fund-raiser for the theatre, the event has developed to become a much-needed showcase for writers, actors and directors.
James Horgan, event organiser, said, “This fun event has continued to surpass all the expectations we had when we began. It has proven to be a wonderful opportunity for new and experienced performers alike. This year will see over 60 people – actors, directors and crew – involved in bringing ten very different stories to life on our stage.”
James went on to say, “This is more than simply a fund-raising event for the Cork Arts Theatre. Important as that is, we are really looking forward to also combining the considerable talents of local writers, directors and performers and continuing to create a ‘buzz’ about theatre in Cork. Our city is full to the brim with exceptional talent and this is just one more outlet for that talent.”
