Created by director Dominic D’Andrea, the New York One-Minute Play Festival started as a short-form theatre experiment in 2007 at the Brick Theater in Williamsburg seeking to distill a theatrical event down to its most immediate and elemental form of storytelling. It continues to serve as a playwright-focused community event, bringing artists and community together to promote the spirit of radical inclusion and invite artists to dialogue about an emerging form of theatre.  Past New York festivals have included: The Brick Theater in Williamsburg (also partnering with Monarch Theatre 2007); TBG Arts Theatre (2008); HERE Arts Center as part of the Autumn Artist Lodge (2009); and at Astoria Performing Arts Center (2010.) In 2010 the festival started producing nationally partnering with theatres who either have playwright-focused or community-based missions: East LA Rep (Los Angeles, CA, Dec 2010), The Playwrights Foundation (San Francisco, CA, Dec 2010), and The New Brunswick Theatre Festival (NJ, Jan 2010.) Additional festivals are being planned for Washington, DC, and Chicago  for 2011.

The New Brunswick Theater Festival‘s mission is to cultivate a hip, mindful, and inclusive Hub City community of artists and audiences empowered to create inspired and inspiring art by combining exciting, free, professional performances with a dynamic educational outreach component. Since its inception, the New Brunswick Theater Festival has provided free theater to new audiences, given young artists their first glimpse into the world of Shakespeare, and provided young artists with training alongside professional mentors. As we grow we hope you will join us in continuing our mission and helping to stimulate the living and working artistic environment that is New Brunswick, New Jersey.
