Overview

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 emerging writers, giving them the exposure of publication and representation.

The festival resulting in this collection was held October 23rd - 28th, 2012 at Theatre Row on 42nd Street in New York City.

From the initial pool of over 900 submissions, 40 were chosen to be performed over a period of one week. A panel of judges comprised of professional playwrights, literary agents, and artistic directors from theatres across the nation 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.

This Collection Includes: 
Anniversary by Rachel Bonds
Naked Eyes by Dean Imperial
Forgetting to Rember by Greg Kalleres
Missed Connection by Catya McMullen
Edison/Tesla/Brain/Dave by Kevin Mead and Darren Miller
