Synopsis

10 by 10 meets perfectly the growing demand by presenters and educators for plays that build character. It started with a simple notion: Take ten top playwrights-for-youth and send them on a mission. Write a short play that illustrates an important human value. Honesty. Family. Respect for life. Respect for parents. Truthfulness. Faith. Gratitude. Sanctity. And so forth. Each of these playwrights has risen enthusiastically to the artistic challenge and its profound possibilities. 10 by 10 forms a linked collection of short plays that will delight, astonish, challenge and inspire audiences young and old.
