Get ready for our 12th installment of the Ten Minute Play Festival! This time it will be three fantastic nights of Circus-themed ten minute plays. The train's coming into town, folks, and you don't want to miss the show!

The Portland Ten Minute Play Festival is a seasonal collaborative event that features ten locally written ten minute plays for three nights in a row (same plays each night). Each play features different writers, directors, and actors—many people are involved! The festival is a seasonal opportunity for Portland artists to share moments, and for the audience to experience a wide range of stories in one night. It’s a fun, festival atmosphere!

For our 12th festival, the theme is Circus! Think: the story of Siamese twins wanting to separate, bearded ladies fighting, a musical involving a Bird-Boy looking for his lost parents, the hospital room of an injured tight-rope walker, two bank robbers who are dressed as clowns, a young man who jumps the train to join the circus, the story of love on the circus train, the story of a small circus troupe, three clowns who attend a job training seminar, and the mysterious case of the lion tamer's missing head!

We are also pleased to provide interlude music in between the plays from the talented Kiran Moorty. He will take the audience on a journey throughout the circus, singing and playing the story to us all.

This Spring, Monkey With a Hat On invites you to come out to the Circus... to the Greatest Ten Minute Play Fest on Earth!
