BTM XVI's One-Minute Sprints

The Dramatists Guild New England and Boston Playwrights' Theatre are co-hosting the One-Minute Sprints as part of the annual Boston Theater Marathon (BTM) weekend.

What’s a One-Minute Sprint? It’s a one-minute play on the theme of “TIME IS RUNNING OUT” that will be read by four very talented Bostonian actors(two men, two women). It’s great fun and a chance to hear many different voices.

WHAT | The One-Minute Sprints (a.k.a. one-minute plays) as part of the BTM Warm-Up Laps readings at the Boston Theater Marathon
WHEN | Saturday, May 10, 2014

The One-Minute Sprints) will be read by professional actors beginning at 11:50 a.m., 1:50 p.m., and 3:50 p.m. before each full-length play reading.
