Timothy Devery plays Jeff in Be Right Back, one of seven plays that are part of the second annual 10-Minute Play Festival at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. It was written by Scott Haan.
Question: Who is Jeff?
Timothy Devery: Jeff is a sports-loving, adoring and doting husband who wants to get the shopping done so he can watch football on TV with his wife in the background.
Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about acting in a 10-minute play?
T.D.: Unlike a full-length play where you have multiple scenes with multiple emotions, in a 10-minute play it's just the one scene variant. You have to hit that on the money, or the entire play is ruined instead of just one moment.
Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
T.D.: "buy pillows"
The second annual 10-Minute Play Festival will be Friday, June 6 and Saturday, June 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the historic Monon Depot Theatre, 320 N. 5th Street – the corner of 5th Street and North Street in downtown Lafayette. All 7 plays will be performed both nights.
The festival is a Pay What You Can event, and general admission tickets will be 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.
