5-Minute Plays for Teens is the latest collection from veteran editor Lawrence Harbison, a man who has...We know - we're already losing your attention. And that's okay! In keeping with the spirit of this book, we'll give it to you in five.



1.On any given day, the average teen spends nine hours engaging with digital media. A fair chunk of that time is spent watching viral videos, which run, on average, for about five minutes.



2. Needless to say, an average play runs far longer (and costs much more). Accordingly, teens don't have the time (or money) for theater.



3. Adolescence is an emotional roller coaster rife with laughs and melodrama, reality and fantasy. Whatever a teen's mood, bite-sized bits of online entertainment keep him/her covered.



4. At long last, the world of theater has caught up with the digital realm. Five-minute plays and festivals abound –you can now plow through a full-fledged performance before your kids loses interest



5. Seems your children/students/kids suddenly do have time for theatre.



Whether you're a frustrated acting teacher struggling to retain your students' interest, a performing arts counselor looking for an engaging exercise, or a group of theater kids looking to screw around between sets, 5-Minute Plays for Teens shoehorns all the theater you need into the precise attention span you're granted. Why not give it a whirl?

His deep love for the theater and for all sorts of plays, his unbounded enthusiasm for good work, and his tremendously clear eye for talent are all legendary.” – Don Nigro
