About the Plays:

Some great pieces for scene work or performance.

The acclaimed Samuel French Off Off Broadway Original Short Play Festival in Manhattan (commonly referred to as OOB) is America's leading short play festival. The annual OOB Festival originated in 1975 and has since attracted US and international short plays that may be up to 15 pages in length from countries like Canada, Singapore, and the United Kingdom.

Off Off Broadway Festival Plays, 45th Series is a collection of short plays selected by a panel of judges that included New York playwrights, artistic directors, and industry leaders as the most important plays of the 45th OOB Festival. The Final 30 Playwrights competed for the six prize spots chosen from over 500 submissions worldwide. Six short plays were named the winners of the 2020 Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival. The six winning authors are: Caity-Shea Violette, Carissa Atallah, Gethsemane Herron-Coward, Vincent Terrell Durham, Shara Feit, and Krista Knight.
