Overview

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 8 - 12, 2017 at the Classic Stage Company in New York City.


From the initial pool of over 1000 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:
