It's fast, it's fun,
it's where you, the audience, get to play critic and
vote each night for your choice for the best play!
year the New York City 15 Minute Play Festival features 35 to 40
original short plays chosen from more than 300 submissions from some of
our most exciting new playwrights from throughout the United States.
Five plays are presented each of the festival's first seven evenings
with the audience voting each night to select the best. Winning plays
move on to the finals and two additional performances where a panel of
judges chooses winners in three categories: Best Play, Best Direction
and Best Performance, and where the audience votes for overall Audience
Favorites. The Festival closing night on May 4 will feature an awards
presentation and closing night party which the audience is invited to
attend. It's a fun evening and a chance to see some terrific new plays.
