The One-Minute Play Festival was created in New York in 2007 by its curator, Dominic D’Andrea, to promote the spirit of radical inclusion for writers of different age, gender, race, culture and point of career. The one-minute play challenges the playwrights to expertly craft a theatrical moment. It requires a new sensibility to work in this deceptively small form. The Festival has partnered with theaters in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, New Brunswick, and New York, where it is now an annual tradition. The program will allow Primary Stages to further its support and cultivation of established and emerging playwrights.
