Long Plays

When I was at the Great Plains Theatre Conference in 2007, Edward Albee was on a bit of a crusade to change the term "full-length play" to mean a stand-alone play, a two act, play or otherwise a play that was not "just a short play." He said that any play that was complete was its full length, so a complete 10-minute play is at its full length at 10 pages, etc. Since then, I've referred to my "stand-alone length" plays as "long plays" and every else as "short plays." PSA brought to you from the office of Playwright Affairs, Member FDIC.
