Ten Minute Dramas
For the Stage
By Alejandro Canelos
Priceless socks, shuffling weirdos, French-cut green beans, a shoehorn of consequence, ants on the loose.
A dry cleaner named Vesuvius, two plumbers, Rodney singing Rigoletto, an armed mediator, onions making a scene.
Six ways to get bit by a rattlesnake, brown bag intruders, brothers in the dark, the death knell of a triangle.
With Ten-Minute Dramas, Alejandro Canelos gets right to the point.
