Fells Point Corner Theatre is seeking original 10-minute plays by Baltimore area playwrights for the critically acclaimed local play festival 10x10x10. The 10x10x10 play festival is a staple of local theatre in Baltimore, and one of the highest selling productions at Fells Point Corner Theatre each season.
Audience votes are collected and counted at the end of each performance. The play with the most votes at the end of the run wins the Audience Selection Award and a cash prize of $150. That’s 10 TIMES the price of admission! Second and third place finishers will also receive a cash prize award. See festival rules and guidelines below for more information.
