The Minnesota Shorts Play Festival will not have a live performance this year because of the pandemic.
We value our audience and actors, and do not want to put them at risk of contracting the virus during an indoor performance.
But, the Shorts WILL go on. Merely Players chose six short scripts with 2-person casts and will be filming them at the
KTV studio for broadcast to the public during September. We will feature four one-minute plays with 2-people casts for the
festival. So stay tuned.
The short scripts this year will be:
The Deal by Mike McGeever
3 Bad Dates and a Proposal by Lindsy Gibb
Hypothetically Speaking by Brian Sutton
Stranger Danger by William Sikorski
and Hotel Rewards by Stephen Murray
Our one-minute plays are:
On a Train by Mark Harvey Levine
It's Special by Claudia Haas
The Birthday Wish by James Leinen
and Clue by JJ McConnell
For those short plays with more than 2 people in the cast, we will be (hopefully) performing them at the 2021 festival
So despite COVID-19, you can still get into some Minnesota Shorts!
