In the Wings: The 10-Minute Play Festival - "The Best of Intentions." Meet Steve Koehler, the director.

Steve Koehler directs The Best of Intentions, 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 Laurie Russell.

Question: Why did you want to direct The Best of Intentions?
Steve Koehler: I really enjoyed the play upon reading it. I looked forward to the opportunity to work with Laurie Russell.

Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about directing a 10-minute play?
S.K.: Finding time to make sure the characters develop in a way that the audience will understand, yet also keep the play clipping along nicely so it fits within the 10 minutes.
