In the Wings: The Inaugural 10-Minute Play Festival - Feed Me! Meet Evan Malone.

Evan Malone plays Craigslist 1 in Feed Me!, one of six plays that are part of the inaugural 10-Minute Play Festival at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. The play was written and directed by Zachary Baiel. The festival will be at 7:30 p.m. on June 21-22 at the historic Monon Depot Theatre in downtown Lafayette.

Question: How would you describe Craigslist 1?
Evan Malone: Craigslist 1 is interesting, to say the least. Craiglist 1 is one of the people coming to look at something that's been put up on Craiglist. Craigslist 1 is an insane person, definitely not all there in the head.

Q: What is a challenge or a fun part of acting in a ten-minute play that you don't get in a full-length play?
E.M.: The good thing is that you don't have to memorize a whole lot of lines, whereas in a full-length production it takes much longer. We were off book in the second rehearsal.

Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
E.M.: "shower"

The inaugural 10-Minute Play Festival will be Friday, June 21 and Saturday, June 22 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre at 320 N. 5th Street - the corner of 5th Street and North Street - in downtown Lafayette. It is a Pay What You Can event, general admission tickets are available at the box office immediately before the event begins.

The mission of Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette is to enhance the artistic and cultural environment of Greater Lafayette through theatrical productions and educational opportunities.
