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

Aidan Andronicos plays Mark 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 Mark?
Aidan Andronicos: Mark is in his early to mid-20s. He's just gotten out of a relationship with a girl. They had a cat together, she left without taking the cat, so he now has to do something with the cat. He's definitely not stable, he's got troubles.

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?
A.A.: It's not an enormous commitment, there are fewer lines to memorize. But we still put just as much energy being put into that smaller time frame.

Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
A.A.: "wash dishes after having a large dinner"

He also appears in Adventures in Mutual Knowledge written and directed by Jeremiah Dole.

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.
