Four characters. Ten minutes. One surprise theme!
Once a month, Southern Rep challenges the local playwriting community to write ten-minute plays based on a surprise theme. The best six are then given staged readings using the best acting and directing talent the city has to offer!
“Every month, six writers get to see and hear their work on stage. This gift is why we write, and 6×6 brings our words and dreams to life!”
“[6×6] gives novice playwrights like me the opportunity to have their work…directed, and performed by respected members of the New Orleans theatre community”
“6×6… has afforded me the genuine, professional feedback I need in order to improve my 10-minute play writing.”
“Participating…inspires me to write new work dealing with subjects I wouldn’t necessarily pursue on my own.”
“Seeing those words I type out on a blank screen come to life is an absolute thrill.”
“I love meeting all the talented actors and directors that Southern Rep brings in.”
“The caliber of work produced through this program inspires me to work harder and keep up with these talented folks.”
“Seeing my work brought to life through this program is thrilling and immensely useful.”
“Why [is]… 6×6 important? Because new work matters. Because these playwrights need their plays to be interpreted by actors and directors. Because these plays need to be seen and heard by audiences. It’s that simple. New work matters.”
