Performance Notes

× Theatre Odyssey was founded in 2006 and is a producer of original short plays. Its annual Ten-Minute Play Festivals have become iconic. Many of the plays we have originally produced are now seen worldwide. The 2019 One-Act Play Festival will be Theatre Odyssey’s second and the plays will be chosen from those submitted from all over our country. (Last year, 100 plays were submitted from twenty-six states and the District of Columbia.) The plays are professionally scored by top notch play readers and range from comedy to drama. Since we do not know the actual running time of each of the plays until they are selected, count on approximately two hours (with intermission) of some of the best short plays America has to offer.Four Plays Selected for Theatre Odyssey's Second Annual One-Act Play Festival The plays, all Florida premiers, are: Growl by J. Lois Diamond Iranian poet Simin Behbahani is heading to Paris to read her poetry when she is detained in the Tehran airport. Despite being 82 and almost blind, she is interrogated throughout the night. Will her principles prove to be stronger than her fears? Immurement by David L. Williams A couple of young tourists in a foreign country have just been arrested. They’re not sure why they’re being detained, but when an attorney sent by the local government arrives to review their case, they learn, to their dismay, what their crime was and more importantly, what their punishment is going to be. Ivy Walls by Karen Cecilia Camille, a college senior who works hard and sacrifices everything for her future, finds herself in a situation with her dorm mate, Emma, which challenges her to question everything she has worked for. (This play will be produced with a Content Warning.) Provenance by Ian Patrick Williams A near¬ homicidal art collector confronts a forger when he realizes the painting he bought at auction is a fake
