IWU Professor’s Work Selected for Annual 10-Minute Play Festival
April 25, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ill. – An original play written by Illinois Wesleyan University Professor
of Greek and Roman Studies Nancy Sultan has been selected to be produced at Heartland
Theatre in Normal as a part of their annual 10-Minute Play Festival.
Sultan’s work, titled Pas de Deux, is one of eight finalists chosen from 165 submissions through three phases of blind
judging, the last of which was judged by a published New York playwright. The theme
for this year’s festival is “One Shoe.”
Pas de Deux is about the life of a homeless couple and how it is transformed into a wonderful
fantasy world when the wife finds a discarded shoe. The performances of the piece
will be at the festival, which will run through the weekends of May 31- June 17.
Heartland Theatre Company Artistic Director Mike Dobbins will select directors for
each play and hold auditions in early May. For audition information, ticket information

Heartland Theatre Company was founded in 1986 by Phillip Shaw, Carol Reitan and Rita
Kohn and currently is located at the Normal Community Activity Center at One Normal
Plaza, Normal, Ill.
