The festival resulting in this collection was held August 9-14, 2016 at the Classic Stage Company in New York City.
From the initial pool of over 1400 submissions, the final thirty plays were chosen to be performed over a period of one week. A panel of judges comprised of celebrity playwrights, theatrical journalists, 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:
