Q: What is a challenge or something exciting about acting in a 10-minute play?
D.S-D.: I think it's more fun to be in a 10-minute play because you move quickly from having no script to doing blocking in a short amount of time. In a long play, it takes more than a month or so.
Q: Fill in the blank: "In the time it takes me to _____, I could watch a 10-minute play."
