Once again I am producing an afternoon of 10-minute plays.

The Pulp Friction 2015 10-minute Play Festival will run as part of the Proto Pulp Book Show on Saturday, September 26, at the Idea Hatchery (1108 Woodland Street) near Five Points in East Nashville. Last year’s inaugural production was so well received that we wanted to make it an annual event!

Once again we will produce four original short plays by Middle Tennessee playwrights in repertory from 1:00PM until 5:00PM on the small stage behind the Arts and Invention Gallery during Proto Pulp. Each play will be about 10 minutes long. We expect to start at the top of each hour and run the whole program (all four plays) four times during the afternoon.

This is open air bare stage theater---just actors, words, and action--- the way Shakespeare did it!

Pulp Friction 2015 will again be produced by Hugh Moffatt, and this year we welcome Lane Wright as director/artistic director. Lane is well known to Nashville theater goers as both actor and director.

The plays are:

“(Not) Who You Think I Am” by Hunter Moore

“Literally” by Tom Angland

“A Love Story” by Katie McDougall

“Leaving Home” by Hugh Moffatt

Hunter and Hugh are returning playwrights from last year, and Tom was our director—now a playwright! We welcome Katie to the fold. The four plays are varied in style and subject and each is highly entertaining.

The actors who have agreed to grace our stage this year are:

Arvis Wright - “(Not) Who YOU Think I Am” and “A Love Story”

Dan Ziegler - "A Love Story” and “Leaving Home"

Taylor Chew - “Literally” and “Leaving Home”

Jake Abell - “(Not) Who YOU Think I Am” and “Literally”

Many of you will remember that Taylor and Jake were part of Pulp Friction 2014 also. We are proud that they are returning and very excited about Arvis and Dan joining them. SEE YOU THERE!
