Concord Theatricals presents the 47th Annual Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival. Selected from over 650 submissions, the Top 30 plays are presented in four separate evenings, where they will be presented in front of a judging panel comprised of professionals representing various parts of the theatrical industry. After each evening’s sessions, the judges deliberate and choose one to three plays to move on to the Finals on Saturday.
During the Finals, we will take the Top 10 to 12 plays and split them into two afternoon sessions. The Festival staff will watch both sessions and select the Final 6 titles to be included in the Off Off Broadway Festival Plays series, which is published and licensed by Samuel French, Inc, A Concord Theatricals Company.
The Top 30 plays will be presented as staged readings at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre from August 16 – 19 and the advancing finalists will perform on August 20.
The shows presented in the Saturday August 20th at 4:30 pm session are:
