Can you really write a play that lasts a minute? The one minute play presents a unique creative challenge: how does one create room for actors to perform, for directors to create a world, and for audiences to learn something, all in 60 seconds? Steve Ansell and Rose Burnett Bonczek demystify the super-short-form play, demonstrating that this rich, accessible format offers great energy and variety not only to audiences but to everyone involved in its creation and performance. This invaluable handbook includes: * An anthology of 200 one-minute plays selected from the annual Gone in 60 Seconds festival. * A toolbox of exercises, methodologies and techniques for educators, practitioners and workshop leaders at all levels. * Tips and advice on the demands of storytelling, inclusivity, and creative challenges. * Detailed accounts of producing 10 specific plays in the US and UK, demonstrating the different strategies and sensibilities at play.
