10 Minute Play

After a good, long run, we have decided to close our forums in an effort to refocus attention to other sections of the site. Fortunately for you all, we're living in a time where discussion of a favorite topic now has a lot of homes. So we encourage you all to bring your ravenous love for discussion to Chuck's official Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram. And, as always, you can still post comments on all News updates. Thank you for your loyalty and passion over the years. These changes will happen June 1.

My creative writing professor has given me the task of writing a ten-minute play. Students from a creative drama class--who are, by the way, in seventh grade—have been chosen to perform the plays(the children are my puppets, I am the director). Language must be “clean”. Topic must be “appropriate”. The play doesn’t specifically have to be for middle-schoolers, but it shouldn’t be “R” rated. No one person monologues and a limit of five main characters.

I have a few ideas, but I would appreciate suggestions.

1. Ten Minutes
2. Language “clean”, topic “appropriate”—I know it is not easy.
3. No one person monologues
4. Limit five main characters
5. Twenty-Five Seventh graders are at my disposal[/COLOR]
