The 10 Minnesota finalists have been named. Those scripts will be sent to Merely Players, who will choose seven of the ten for a September performance.
The finalists are: (in alpha order)
Alice, Pursued by a Bear
For Her, For Him
Promises on the Way Down
Ring My Bell
Sid and Ashley
The Grass is Always Greener Starboard
The Wager
Whatever Her Name Is

After the seven plays are chosen, we will list the playwrights who wrote them. National finalists will be named by the end of the month.
The Best of the Fest award will be given out each night, giving playwrights an opportunity to win $100 for their work. We look forward to seeing you at our festival 7:30 p.m. Sept. 8-9 at the Lincoln Community Theater in Mankato!


Our Mission
The goal of Minnesota Shorts is to bring short play festivals to Minnesota and make theater accessible to a wider audience. All plays are 15 minutes or less.
