The Portland 10MPF is an event MWHAO produces three times a year featuring nine original, new plays written, directed and performed by Portland artists. Each play is ten minutes or less and all of the plays are performed every performance night two weekends in a row. It's a very fun, well attended event and we believe there is nothing else like it in the city. We are theater for everybody: only charging 5 bucks a ticket and we have an open-door policy where anyone can submit a play or try out to be involved. these are your stories, Portland!
In the Science 10MPF you'll experience two androids working a 9-5 that hide human emotions from their boss. The de-thawed head of Steve Jobs finds out the future sucks. A dude short on cash makes the mistake of joining a medical experiment. A desperate wife pretends to be a bird to regain her partner's love. During an interview, a teacher discovers the school is more than non-traditional. A spacewalk with a clumsy astronaut and an obsessive ex partner. Aliens argue over whether they should destroy earth. An actress gets a role in "Frankenstein," but realizes she is cast as the monster and the doctor is played by an android. A woman uses time travel to save a date from going horribly wrong.
In-between each of the plays we will have our house band, junglecorp, laying down a rock opera about what the future may hold for genetic engineering...
The 10MPF sells out so don't be a sad Monkey who doesn't get in and get your tickets ahead of time!
This fall come out to the Clinton Street Theater and celebrate everything about Science that is fun, quirky, ridiculous (sometimes deathly serious) and hilarious!
