The Summer Ten Minute Play Festival


Clinton Street Theater, Portland Oregon
June 15th 16th 22nd 23rd
Doors @ 6:00 – Curtain @ 7:00
Only $5!

The Portland 10MPF is a collaborative short form theater event with all the plays performed two weekends in a row. Each play is ten minutes or less and features some of Portland’s best theater talent - writers, actors, directors, and crew! The 10MPF is a showcase of contemporary and unique stories that always entertain and inspire our audience. We want you to be a part of it with us!


In the Summer 10MPF you'll experience a noir tale about a 1950s married couple and their trusty paperboy, a boss teaching her employee the best way to fly fish, a new take on a Midsummer Night's Dream that occurs on a park bench, one mom's attempt to keep her troubled son enrolled in summer camp, two sisters lost at Burning Man, a friendly lemonade stand turning into into a cut throat neighborhood competition, two camp counselors daring for intimacy with a killer on the loose, a desperate mother and her bratty daughter interrupting a relaxing summer day, and a couple campers running into a bummed out Smokey the Bear and trying to reignite his passion.

Between each play the surf rock sounds of Sun Drunks will help us cowabunga our way through a bodacious evening of theater.
