10-Minute Windows

Stained Glass Playhouse is proud to present “10-Minute Windows," a virtual play festival in partnership with Winston-Salem Writers. The festival will feature six brand-new short plays written by local playwrights, which will be premiered during the first three weekends of June on the Playhouse’s Facebook page. Two plays will be shown each weekend, on both Friday and Saturday night at 7 p.m. The plays will then be available on-demand after they premiere, on both Facebook and the Playhouse’s YouTube channel.

The festival will culminate in an awards ceremony that will be streamed live on Facebook on Friday, June 25 at 7 p.m. Viewers will be able to vote on Facebook to decide the winners. There will also be a “critics’ choice” award determined by a panel of representatives from other local theatre companies.

The "10-Minute Windows" virtual play festival is free to view, but we welcome donations to Stained Glass Playhouse and Winston-Salem Writers in lieu of purchasing tickets.
