Who Doesn't Like to Play Games? Auditions Next Week!

Heartland Theatre will hold auditions next Monday and Tuesday, April 23 and 24, for 18 roles available in their annual 10-Minute Play Festival. This year's theme is "Playing Games," which means that each of the plays involves some kind of game.

"Playing Games" 10-Minute Plays

This year's winning plays, playwrights and directors are:

It's time for Jake to meet the parents, but Sue insists that he learn - and master -- her family's favorite game before they go. Can this relationship survive cutthroat Rummikub?

Director: Misti Somers

by John D. Poling, Clinton IL
Divorce, a new partner, a custody battle... This time, the one caught in the middle is a puppy named Destiny, after a scary trip to the vet brings the whole triangle and its tug-of-war into sharp focus.

Director: Chris Gray

Did you ever wonder if you existed, or if you were just a character in a video game? No? Well, the line between game and reality is only too real for Hector. Unless it's imaginary.

Director: Kenny Kendall

by Erin Moughon, New York NY
Ms. Murphy and Mr. Jones may've been playing their made-up game for three years, but it's probably more like three hours. The one thing they can count on is that no rule ever stays the same.
1 female and 1 male, 20s to 30s
Director: Matt Campbell

by Mike Poblete, Brooklyn NY
Kyle and Judy are OVER. No more Ring Around the Rosy. No more sharing the Mickey Mouse car. But on the playground of their relationship, being tagged IT may be the ultimate romantic gesture.
1 female, 2 males, any ages
Director: Rachel Krein

by Marj O'Neill-Butler, Miami Beach FL
Did Rosie meet Bob in the pasta section or the dairy aisle? Was he wearing red running shoes or scarlet Crocs? Whose "missed connection" was whose? Oh well. All is fair in the Mating Game!
1 female, 1 male, 20s to 30s
Director: Ron Emmons

by Austin Steinmetz, Columbus OH
If people find out that 5-time National Scrabble Champion Jerry Diddle has been hiding Es up his sleeves, he may just lose everything. Or he may find out there's more to life than Triple Word Scores.
