It’s a “graduation party” at Heartland Theatre! We’re looking for 10-minute plays that explore the fleeting moments when people realize they’re finishing a journey together.
You’re also going to have to decide what the journey was all about, of course. Did the co-workers really bond during that five-day survival course in the wilderness? When one spouse earns an MBA, is the other half of the relationship cheering or grimacing? Whether your graduates are leaving a vacation bible school or a Ph.D. program, let us see them say good-bye.
Eight winning plays submitted from around the world will be fully staged. Many of the playwrights will travel to see their original plays realized for the first time. Join the fun!

CLASS ACT by Dan Borengasser, Springdale AR
CAKES AND CORPSES by Milo Schucavage, New York NY
