Curated By OMPF Producing Artistic Director, Dominic D’Andrea
The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC-based theatre company, founded by Dominic D’Andrea, which works in partnership with theatres who share playwright or community-specific missions across the country. 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.
OMPF is the only major American One-Minute Play Festival, and has developed a specific methodology and ideology for one-minute playmaking and community engagement.
Notable Alums include: David Henry Hwang, Tina Howe, Neil LaBute, Rajiv Joseph, Kristoffer Diaz, Donald Margulies, Craig Lucas, Lisa Loomer, Phillip Kan Gotanda, Michael John Garces, Jason Grote, Mike Daisey, and others.
OMPF has partnered with theaters in over a dozen cities including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, New Brunswick, Trenton, Miami, Chicago, Boston, Baltimore, Minneapolis, Philadelphia and others.

Actor’s Express is a theatre that challenges and reflects contemporary human experiences in an inclusive environment. We seek to jumpstart individual transformations through the shared adventure of our live performances, which range from daringly provocative to audaciously hilarious.
Actor’s Express constantly develops new talent, pushes boundaries and encourages people to question their place in the world. Our work creates emotional connections between audience and artist, catalyzing discussion on the complex issues of the contemporary human experience. We stay one step ahead of the conversation – our audiences expect to be challenged when they attend our programming.
We firmly believe the relevance and vitality of the American theatre depends upon a continual infusion of new work and the nurturing of new playwrights. Playwrights are the chroniclers, critics and prophets of our times. They offer stories about the way we live, love, and sacrifice, and provide new insights into our shared humanity. Actor’s Express is committed to championing the emerging voices of the American stage.
Our primary goals are four-fold: to nurture the next generation of playwrights through workshops, readings, and full productions of new plays; to develop and nurture Atlanta’s artistic community through rigorous theatre training; to catalyze the dialogue essential to the vitality of our neighborhood and our city; and to enhance Atlanta’s reputation nationally as a thriving center for live performance.
