The One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is America’s largest and longest-running short form theatre company in the country, founded by Producing Artistic Director Dominic D’Andrea. #1MPF is a barometer project that investigates the zeitgeist of different communities. #1MPF works in partnership with theatres sharing playwright or community-specific missions across the country. #1MPF creates locally-sourced playwright-focused events with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing cultures of playwrights of different ages, genders, races, cultures, and points of career. The work attempts to reflect the theatrical landscape of artistic communities by creating a dialogue between the collective conscious and the individual voice.
