In the Wings: The 10-Minute Play Festival – "You Don't Work Here." Meet Jennifer Carriere.



Jennifer Carriere plays Erin in You Don't Work Here, one of seven plays that are part of the second annual 10-Minute Play Festival at Civic Theatre of Greater Lafayette. Evan Myers wrote the play.

Question: What does Erin want?
Jennifer Carriere: Erin wants to kick this Josh kid out of her bar and get things back to normal.

Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about acting in a 10-minute play?
J.C.: It's enjoyable how quick it goes, but it's also a challenge how quick it goes and you're trying to get your character across to the audience in 10 minutes.

Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
J.C.: "kick someone out of a bar"

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.
