Arianna Rose’s FAMILY BY NUMBERS was the Best Play at the fourteenth annual Ten-Minute Play Festival, the first one open to playwrights from throughout the state of Florida.
Arianna is from Miami. “Choreographing the movements of the Family is a major strength of Michele Strauss’ brisk direction,” wrote critic Marie Kilker. “Oldest Son’s tragedy affects and changes everyone, but the Family keeps its Numbers in a creative way.”
The cast included Scott Ehrenpreis, Ricky Bizzaro, Tyler Gevas, Ren Pearson and Julee Breehne.
Sarasotan Keith Whalen authored the Runner-Up play, COMING TO TOWN.
Directed by Jamie Butrum, the cast of Bob Trisolini, Philip Troyer and Sandra Musicante performed this offbeat family holiday story.
Adjudicators for the 2019 festival were Natalie Symons, current playwright-in-residence at American Stage, St. Petersburg; Doug Jones, actor with Asolo Rep for thirty seasons; Greg Leaming, Director of the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training and Associate Director of the Asolo Repertory Theatre.
