New Manifest Theatre's first annual Short Play Festival will highlight the company's mission of storytelling from a diversity of specific voices, styles, and perspectives in contemporary theatre. The festival will present 5-10 short plays between 1 to 20 minutes long directed by a variety of directors with a diverse cast.
The plays will be chosen from a diverse variety of playwrights with help from the New Play Exchange database and local Austin submissions. After the show, we will hold an optional talk back session including actors, directors, and playwrights to build an open dialogue about the plays and the process of creating new works.
This event will be donation based and pay-what-you-can admission to remove the barrier of access to this new artistic work
