The One-Minute Play Festival Returns for a 7th Time
The One-Minute Play Festival (Dominic D’Andrea, Producing Artistic Director and Caitlin Wees, Associate Producer) and Actor's Express (Freddie Ashley, Artistic Director and Alex Scollon, Managing Director) have created a dynamic partnership for The 7th Atlanta One- Minute Play Festival with part of the proceeds to benefit artist residency and educational programming. One-Minute plays by established and emerging Atlanta playwrights were commissioned for this special event, prompted by 1MPF’s unique playmaking process.
The One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is America’s largest and longest running grassroots theatre company, founded by Producing Artistic Director, Dominic D’Andrea. #1MPF is social barometer project, which investigates the zeitgeist of different communities through dialogue, consensus building, and a performance of 50-100 short moments generated by each community. #1MPF works in partnership with theatres and/or social organizations sharing playwright, educational, or community-specific missions across the country. The aim is to create locally sourced playwright-focused community events, with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion. #1MPF represents playwrights of different age, gender, race, cultures, and points of career. The work attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of local artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice.
