Future Ten 10: A Showcase of the Past Decade
Future Tenant's annual 10-minute play festival, Future Ten, is celebrating its tenth anniversary. To commemorate a decade of showcasing local talent and vibrant new work, producer Fred Betzner dug deep into the Future Ten archives and selected eight of Future Ten's best submissions of all-time. In collaboration with Brad and Fred, local directors John Lane, Don DiGiulio, Todd Betker, and Joanna Lowe have brought together a remarkable ensemble of local actors to perform in this special best-of production.

The eight selected plays for Future Ten 10 are:
