Ten Minute Plays
Heuer introduced an incredible selection of ten minute plays in 2006 to an astounding response. Interest from directors has grown exponentially ever since. The Ten Minute Play Pack includes performance rights and scripts for the cast and director. For Forensics, the Additional Venue fee is waived.

Some benefits of an evening of Ten Minute Plays are:
 • More actors - all with major roles, but no role too big for anyone.
 • Flexible rehearsals - no major effort two weeks prior to performance.
 • Minimal staging/set - less behind-the-scene work involved.
 • More income - theatres can schedule weekday performances.
 • Audience appeal - theatres can attract a diverse audience.
