Congratulations to our Winning 6!¬†This was one of our strongest years for the OOB Festival. Over six days we had the opportunity to see 30 incredible short plays. These semi-finalists were selected from a pool of 1,500 applicants, making this year’s festival the most competitive in the competition’s forty year history. During the festival week, industry judges selected 12 plays to advance to the Finals, and the Samuel French staff ultimately chose 6 plays for the prize of publication and licensing with Samuel French.

Thank you to everyone who submitted this year. With such an array of talented playwrights, these decisions are never easy.

We encourage all playwrights out there to submit next year! Please join our mailing list below for updates about the OOB Festival and our call for submissions. Thanks for making this such a terrific year for OOB!
