Story Device

A 10 Minute Play

Story device:

"a plot mechanism, or any technique in a narrative used to move the plot forward..."

Characters find themselves experiencing as many story devices that can fit into a 10-minute play with a clever reveal.

“ A meta-twisted meta-tale that is part Beckett and part Pirandello. Highly flexible casting and minimal staging allow for plenty of places to explore Pine's interesting bit of mystery and metaphysics. ”

-Playwright, Dr. Kevin Delin
