Living on the Edge World in Balance play poster Actors' Theatre

The five winning 10-minute original plays from a recent competition are being performed at a Grand Rapids theater.

Actors’ Theatre is producing the 17th Living on the Edge festival on Nov. 23 at 8 p.m. at Spectrum Theater downtown.

The short plays this year follow the theme of “World in the Balance.”

“Human population is booming, natural resources are being consumed at incredibly intensifying rates, decency and integrity is cast away for personal monetary gain and a general value and respect of all things seems to have almost vanished,” said Kyle Los, executive director, Actors’ Theatre.

“We’re here in the balance searching for the crux of such issues, and in the meantime, the effects continue.”

Tickets are $20 for non-students and $10 for students.
