The performances will introduce new student performers and will be directed by professor Karen Anselm and three BU and Bloomsburg Players alumnae, Toni-Ann Mancuso Yates, Abigail Hohmann and Renee Fawess.

Theater professor Bruce Candlish said, “Many professional and college theaters produce festivals of 10-minute plays as part of their ongoing seasons and as a way of promoting new work. For our performance showcase this season, we’ve selected some of the best from festivals around the country.

“What can happen in 10 minutes on stage? Just about anything. The eight plays we’re performing explore a variety of ways of being human,” he said.
