where we’ve been & were we’re going.
The New York One-Minute Festival is the only large-scale one-minute play festival in the country, and has been advocating, advancing, and promoting the one-minute play form since 2007.
Our mission is 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.
The New York One-Minute Play Festival has produced 4 annual New York festival (The Brick, TBG, HERE Arts Center, and Astoria Performing Arts Center), and regional festivals in LA (with East LA Rep), SF (with the Playwrights Foundation), and NY (with the New Brunswick Theatre Festival at Rutgers), Chi (With Victory Gardens Theater.)
