In honor of their sixth year, The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) will present the first of six different events of a season-long investigation focusing on the diverse artistic community of New York City.

OMPF and INTAR Theatre (Lou Moreno, Artistic Director; John McCormack, Executive Director)have created a dynamic partnership to present the first NY New York One-Minute Play Festival Of Latino Voices, one half of the proceeds from which will benefit INTAR’s community based programming.

The NY One-Minute Play Festival of Latino Voice will take place Saturday, October 27th and Sunday, October 28th both at 8:00 p.m. at INTAR Theatre (500 West 52nd Street.) Space is extremely limited. Tickets will be available at http://www.intartheatre.org starting next week!

One-minute plays by nearly 30 of the most exciting established and emerging Latino playwrights were commissioned for this special event, prompted by OMPF’s unique playmaking process.



The One-­Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC-based theatre company, founded by producing artistic director DominicD’Andrea. OMPF works in partnership with theatres sharing playwright or community-specific missions across the country. In each city, OMPF creates locally sourced playwright-focused community events, withthe goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing local cultures of playwrights of different age, gender, race, cultures, andpoints of career.

The work attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of local artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice.

 OMPF works with partnering organizations to identify programs or initiatives in each community to support with the proceeds from the work. The goal is to find ways give directly back to the artists in each community. Supported programs have ranged from educational programming, youth poetry projects, teaching artists working in prisons, playwright residencies and memberships, and community arts workshops.

Partnerships have been created with theaters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New Brunswick, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Washington, DC, Baltimore, Boston, Miami, Minneapolis, and New York. Current and past partnerships include: Primary Stages, Victory Gardens Theatre, Cornerstone Theatre Company, The Playwrights Foundation, Boston Playwrights Theatre, Actor’s Express, InterAct Theatre, Mixed Blood, Passage Theatre, and others.


INTAR (International Arts Relations, Inc.) is an organization committed to the development of “theater arts without borders.” Over the past four decades, INTAR has produced classics, Latino adaptations of classics, cabarets, and 70 world premiers of plays written by Latino-Americans, including 2005 Oscar nominee Jose Rivera and Pulitzer Prize recipient Nilo Cruz.

INTAR, one of the United States’ longest running Latino theater producing in English, works to nurture the professional development of Latino theater artists; produce bold, innovative, artistically significant plays that reflect diverse perspectives; and, make accessible the diversity inherent in America’s cultural heritage.

To date, the theater has commissioned, developed, and produced works by more than 175 Latino writers, composers, and choreographers. It has assisted hundreds of Latino playwrights, directors, and actors in obtaining their first professional theater credits, union memberships, and reviews in English-language media. “There’s scarcely a Latino artist in America who hasn’t been supported or trained or produced by INTAR,” according to The New York Times.
