Now in its 15th year, "Living on the edge" is our annual 10-minute play festival. The main aspect is a playwriting competition. Anyone is welcome to submit a script for a 10-minute play which utilizes each year's unique theme. A panel of judges critiques scripts based on quality of writing and emphasis on the theme.
