As If Theatre Company announces first-ever short play festival

The Kenmore Quickies will be from July 26-28.

As If Theatre Company has announced the playwrights for its first-ever festival of short plays, The Kenmore Quickies.

The eight prompted short plays were written, directed and performed by local theater artists. The selected local playwrights will be given a specific prompt from which to write a 10-minute play in a four-week time frame.

The festival will be a weekend of performances of all of the plays, with a winning play chosen by the audience. This year, the prompts will be pulled from the Kenmore Mural Project (KMP), created by Gaul Culley and Staci Adman, located at 7304 Bothell Way NE — on the St. Vincent de Paul building. Each playwright is randomly assigned a portion of the mural as their specific prompt.

The 2019 Kenmore Quickies playwrights are John C. Davenport, Caitlin Gilman, Marcus Gorman, Betsy Hanson, Christopher Kidder-Mostrom, Catherine Rush, Julieta Vitullo and Carolynne Wilcox.

On May 6, playwrights were randomly assigned their specific section of the mural and directors and actors were assigned to writers. From there, the writers left with their prompts to write their 10-minute plays.

After the playwrights deliver their work, the directors and actors will bring them to life for The Kenmore Quickies festival from July 26-28. The winner of the Audience Favorite Award will be announced after the Sunday performance.

Dates and times: 7:30 p.m. on July 26 and 27 and 5 p.m. on July 28. All plays will be presented at each performance. All tickets are $20 and on sale now for the festival at www.asiftheatre.com.
