Merit Theater and Film Group & 13th Street Repertory Company have, for the past six years, held a summer internship program for between 25-40 interns from all over the world.  Each year the interns create and produce their own show.  This year, we are proud to present the Platypi 10 Minute Play Festival, featuring current Yalie Jerry Lieblich and Yale Alumnus Eugene Ashton-Gonzalez.  The plays in the show were created in Terrence Patrick Hughes' Playwriting Workshop.

Why Platypi?  The platypus is a duck-billed, beaver-tailed, otter-footed egg-laying mammal!  It appears to be many different animals blended together to create something rare.  We have done the same by taking 10 very different plays and creating an exceptionally unique festival.

TICKETS: Adults - $18; Seniors $15; Students $15
