Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival

One of Manhattan's most established play festivals, the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival fosters the work of emerging writers, giving them the exposure of publication and representation.

The festival resulting in this collection was held August 2nd - 9th, 2015 at the Classic Stage Company in New York City.

From the initial pool of over 1400 submissions, the Final 30 plays were chosen to be performed over a period of one week. A panel of judges comprised of celebrity playwrights, theatrical agents and artistic directors 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: 

Evelyn Shaffer and the Chance of a Lifetime by Greg Edwards and Andy Roninson 
Narrators by Simon Henriques 
The Gulf by Audrey Cefaly 
Throws of Love by Amy Staats 
Seabird is in a Happy Place by James Gordon King

Wonderful writing, with terrific characters.  It is rare to find a new writer who captures the south, the way Tennessee Williams and William Falkner were able to.  But, Audrey Cefaly is that playwright.  She has an amazing voice in today's theater.  These two women in the play are women we know.  She speaks through them, right to us.  Excellent.
