We all know time flies when you're having fun. It flies especially quickly when that fun is writing a ten-minute play in 48 hours. That is the task ScriptWorks members were charged with during the Weekend Fling writing retreat. And if that isn't challenge enough, they had to also incorporate three random ingredients into their mini opuses.
1. The dialogue must include passages from the end and the beginning of Finnegan's Wake by James Joyce.
3. Time is running out.
At the end of the Fling, the plays were read in a ScriptWorks Salon at the State Theater. A selection committee picked eight of the plays to produce in the Out of Ink Festival. The selection committee included director Debbie Lynn Carriger, actor Jason Phelps, and Texas A&M - Corpus Christi theatre professor, Alison Frost. The selected plays deal in various ways with those ingredients including scientists dealing with a shrinking world, a young woman getting married to forget her past, and a surprise encounter with Albert Einstein.
