Collection / Anthology

One of Manhattan's most established play festivals, the Samuel French Off Off Broadway Short Play Festival fosters the work of emerging writers, giving them the exposure of publication and representation. Winning authors include: Greg Edwards, Andy Roninson, Simon Henriques, Audrey Cefaly, Amy Staats, James Gordon King, and Gloria Calderon Kellett.

The festival resulting in this collection was held August 2nd - 9th, 2015 at the Classic Stage Company in New York City.

From the initial pool of over 1400 submissions, the Final 30 plays were chosen to be performed over a period of one week. A panel of judges comprised of celebrity playwrights, theatrical agents and artistic directors nominated one or more of each evening's plays as finalists. The final round was then held on the last day of the festival. Out of these plays, six winners listed below were chosen by Samuel French, Inc. to receive publication and licensing contracts:

Evelyn Shaffer and the Chance of a Lifetime by Greg Edwards and Andy Roninson

Narrators by Simon Henriques

The Gulf by Audrey Cefaly

Throws of Love by Amy Staats

Seabird is in a Happy Place by James Gordon King

Blind by Gloria Calderon Kellett
