The One-Minute Play Festival (OMPF) is an NYC- based theatre company, founded by producing artistic director Dominic D’Andrea. OMPF works in partnership with theatres sharing playwright or community-specific missions across the country. In each city, OMPF creates locally sourced playwright-focused community events, with the goal of promoting the spirit of radical inclusion by representing local cultures of 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.
OMPF works with partnering organizations to identify programs or initiatives in each community to support with the proceeds from the work. The goal is to find ways give directly back to the artists in each community. Supported programs have ranged from educational programming, youth poetry projects, teaching artists working in prisons, playwright residencies and memberships, and community arts workshops.
Boston Playwrights’ Theatre was founded in 1981 at Boston University by Nobel Laureate Derek Walcott, Boston Playwrights’ Theatre is an award-winning professional theatre dedicated to new works. At the core of their five programs is the Playwriting MFA offered as part of Boston University’s prestigious Creative Writing Program. Our award-winning alumni have been produced in Regional and New York houses as well as in London’s West End, and our alumni productions have garnered many regional and Boston awards, including regular IRNE and Elliot Norton Awards for “Best New Script.”
