Matt Kirchberg in "The Sky Is...You Know"

Also new this year is the faculty coordinator. Bernadette Cheyne has taken over for Margaret Thomas Kelso, who started the festival and is now Theatre, Film & Dance department chair. “At this point in the process, I try to help solve problems when they arise,” Cheyne said. “I’m also the length police. We insist that our ten minute plays are really ten minutes long.”

“It’s a tough form,” she said, “but it’s such a joy to see an idea developed in a way that’s just right for the ten minute format—any more and it would be gratuitous, any less and it wouldn’t be enough. A number of these plays really fit that category. They’re all quite good!”
