Tamzin Malone directs The Show Must NOT Go On!, 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 Kelly McBurnette-Andronicos.
Question: Why did you want to direct The Show Must NOT Go On!?
Tamzin Malone: It's an hilarious play. It's very funny. It very neatly wraps the whole thing up in ten minutes, and it has a lot of Shakespeare in it.
Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about directing a 10-minute play?
T.M.: You still need to present a fully rounded character even though the play is only ten minutes long. You don't have as much time to develop that on stage, so that's a challenge.
Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
T.M.: "blow dry my hair"
