You’ve heard of one-act play programs and ten-minute play, but now comes The First South Florida One-Minute Play Festival.
More than 40 playwrights with South Florida connections have written (or are still writing) these very brief exercises in dramaturgy for two benefit performances slated for 4:30 and 8 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Deering Estate, 16701 SW 72nd Ave. in Miami.
Robert Caisley’s world premiere script for Winter at New Theatre could use some pruning and the two lead actors could use a bit more stage time to get comfortable with the punishing cascade of dialogue.

New Theater, the Coral Gables troupe losing its current home to a wrecking ball, has moved for the rest of the season to the Roxy Theatre Group near Florida International University’s south campus in Miami.
