Curated by OMPF’s Dominic D’Andrea
The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC-based theatre company, founded by director/dramaturg Dominic D’Andrea, working in partnership with institutional theatres and collectives across the country who share playwright or community-specific missions. OMPF creates local playwright-focused community events, using a specific playmaking process, with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing the culture of playwrights of different age, gender, race culture, and points of career. OMPF attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of local artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice.
In addition to Boston this season, the One-Minute Play Festival will be partnering with theatres in New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Brunswick, South Florida, Chicago, Baltimore/Washington DC, and others with organizations like Primary Stages, Cornerstone Theater Company, The Playwrights Foundation, Victory Gardens, Actors Express, and other vital national theatre companies.
Notable OMPF Alumni include: David Henry Hwang, Neil LaBute, Tina Howe, Rajiv Joseph, Kristoffer Diaz, Lisa Loomer, Donald Margulies, Jason Grote, Mike Daisey, Lydia Diamond, Erik Ehn, Michael John Garces, Rachel Axler, Elizabeth Meriwether, Migdalia Cruz, Qui Nguyen, Craig Lucas, and Michael Hollinger.
