The variety, originality, and spontaneity of these plays is a testament to what happens when you give gifted, committed playwrights the opportunity to write a short play knowing that it will be produced. In their hands it has been proven to be a risk that pays off. At the heart of this event is the imaginative impulse of a playwright writing a play knowing that it will be produced as opposed to hoping that it will be produced. How liberating that has proven to be for this talented group of writers and for all the actors, directors, and designers who have joined them to work on these plays. - William Carden, Artistic Director, HB Playwrights Theatre
