It started with a simple notion: Take ten top playwrights-for-youth and send them on a mission. Write a short play that illustrates an important human value. Honesty. Family. Respect for life. Respect for parents. Truthfulness. Faith. Gratitude. Sanctity. And so forth. Each of these playwrights has risen enthusiastically to the artistic challenge and its profound possibilities. 

You'll find comedies, dramas and "dramadies." From a girl who steals a cell phone at the school dance and comes face to face with an unexpected higher authority, to the grandmother with a penchant for executing buzzing flies with her swatter, to a couple of young concert-goers waiting to meet their idol, 10 by 10 forms a linked collection of short plays that will delight, astonish, challenge and inspire audiences young and old.
