More than 100 of Dubai’s most exciting actors, writers, directors and Independent Theatre Companies will present over 50 10-minute plays at Dubai's top theatre venue, DUCTAC .

The festival will include something for everyone - comedy, drama, romance and thrillers – and all in just 10 minutes! Plays presented in the festival will include the best 10-minute plays from around the world as well as scripts by some of Dubai’s top playwrights, brought to life by Dubai's top actors and directors. And in an added bonus for 2014, Festival Director Alex Broun will be joined by new Associate Festival Director Liz Hadaway, Creative Consultant Sabina Khandwani, winner of the 2011 Emirates Woman of the Year Award and new Director of Development Anil Kumar.
