Alien sex fantasies, extreme family dysfunction and God-fish; it’s all in an evening’s work for the Northwest Festival of Ten Minute Plays. Taking on new adjudication, a new space at Lord Leebrick Theatre’s Broadway location and 10 more budding playwrights, NW 10 is in rehearsals, and on its way.

A good friend calls late at night, breathless with exciting news: “He proposed!” she exclaims. And whether you whoop with joy or nervously gulp chardonnay like Kristen Wiig’s character in the wildly funny movie Bridesmaids, one thing’s for certain: You’ll soon be making room in the closet for a dress you most likely have no control over picking out.
