Winner! Samuel French Off Off Broadway Festival
One of Manhattan's most established play festivals, the Samuel French Off-Off Broadway Short Play Festival fosters the work of young writers, giving them the exposure of publication and representation.
The festival resulting in this collection was held July 15th-20th, 2008 at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre on 42nd Street in New York City.
From the initial submission pool, approximately 50 plays were chosen to be performed over a period of one week. A panel of judges comprised of New York area theater professionals, critics, and educators nominated one or more of each evening's plays as finalists. The final round was then held on the last day of the Festival. Out of these plays, six winners listed below were chosen by Samuel French, Inc. to receive publication and licensing contracts.
Winning Plays in this collection include:
F*cking Art by Bekah Brunstetter
Ayravana Flies, or A Pretty Dish by Sheila Callaghan
The Thread Men by Thomas C. Dunn
The Dying Breed by Thomas Higgins
The Grave by Gabe McKinley
Juniper; Jubilee by Janine Nabers
