New venue. New plays. Same rebellious attitude.
The fifth annual Collective:10 followed four previous SOLD OUT C:10 productions, and featured 11 original plays selected from hundreds of submissions. This year, we took over a loft in the Flatiron and invited you to experience these provocative stories up close in our most intimate setting to date. It was a raw, bare bones chance to experience something real in a political and social climate that constantly puts truth and human connection to the test. Thank you to those who dared to come get uncomfortable with us.
Five plays premiered November 1-5, and another six plays premiered November 8-12. All of this year's plays will be published in The Collective:10 Play Anthology, Vol. 5, which will also feature two additional new plays.
The plays selected for this year's C:10 are a dynamic mix from some of our favorite playwrights and some exciting new voices, including:
Mark Borkowski, Julie Brister, Stacey Isom Campbell, Jonathan Davidson, Nicolas diPierro, Maximillian Gill, Erin Mallon, Craig McNulty, Brandon T. Snider, David Thigpen, Tessa Borbridge and Thomas C. Dunn.
There's nothing like C:10. You'll want to say you were there.
Thank you to all who joined us this year and participated in our NO EMPTY SEATS initiative!
