Cone Man Running Productions is proud to present our Fourth Annual FIVE MINUTE MILE! A unique night of theatre where any given night you can see plays about the start (and end) of relationships, the personal devices with a mind of their own, different ways we cope with death, time travel, sex issues, what happens when you ask for someone Elvish and get Elvis instead and all the stories in between. Comedies and dramas, plays and monologues - you will get to see slices of all kinds of lives - five minutes at a time.

The best part is that you get to help decide what you see! 32 plays are selected for the production. Eight are scheduled to perform each night. The next six are drawn at random at the start of the show. The last six are voted on by the audience based on the title, descriptions and the actors involved! Its a different line up every single night!
