Series A ran May 18-29, offering eight titles. A third batch, Series C, runs June 15-26. Before the festival ends, 25 plays will be seen in three series.

The all-commissioned one-act festival features playwrights who have been produced by Off-Broadway's ATC since 1985. 10x25 concludes the company's 25th anniversary season.

According to ATC, "10x25 will unite and reunite Atlantic ensemble members, playwrights, and frequent guest actors and directors in three separate offerings of ten minute plays, which will run the gamut of theatrical styles and content."

Performances play Tuesday-Saturday at 7:30 the second week, with Saturday and Sunday matinees at 2:30.
