(Applause Acting Series). The plays in this volume of 5-Minute Plays are geared toward adults. Some are comedic, some are dramatic, some are realistic in style, while others are more unconventional. Their length makes them perfect for scene work in class. A few of the plays are written by playwrights who have established quite a reputation with their full-length plays, such as Don Nigro, Lee Blessing, Y York, and Sheila Callaghan. But most are by what I call exciting up-and-comers, such as Nicole Pandolfo, Merridith Allen, Andrew Biss, Adam Kraar, Stephanie Hutchinson, Judy Klass, John McKinney, Scott C. Sickles, Graham Techler, Eric Grant, Deanna Alisa Ableser, Kerri Kochanski, Lisa Bruna, and Grace Trotta.
