The Tank presents an ongoing series that premieres 7 brand-new 10 minute plays by 7 different writers; includes a free beer with admission. More…
7 rules. 7 writers. 7 new plays. 1 free beer. Every other month. For each show, every playwright comes up with one rule, then the 7 playwrights create new plays using all 7 rules. Rules can be general (i.e. "Pants") or specific ("Page one must include a back-handed compliment followed by ten seconds of silence.") Each time you come to 'Rule Of', you'll see different plays with different rules by different writers. And you'll always get a beer on the house.
