Brevity, in the right context, can be bliss, a point not lost on Lakeshore Players. Their fourth annual 10-Minute Play Festival is the result of soliciting original, never-produced works that can be performed in a sixth of an hour or less, with five or fewer actors and the most minimal props. The theater winnowed down more than 200 entries to the seven comedies and three dramas offered up this year. A look over the segments includes a first-day bus driver dealing with his mother at work, a band of aging rockers having a row backstage, a guilty secret at a wedding, and a sports dealer trying to sell the detached cranium of the Splendid Splinter (think Boston Red Sox and batting titles).
Thursdays-Saturdays, 8 p.m.; Sundays, 2 p.m. Starts: June 5. Continues through June 8, 2008
