It’s 2012, and as we head into a new year, and a new OOB Festival, the Samuel French staff has decided to make some fresh, exciting adjustments for this year’s competition:
- The 2012 Off Off Broadway Festival will take place in the Fall instead of the summer.
- Because of the later date of the Festival, the submissions period will be moved back. Submissions should be open beginning sometime in early to mid February.
We made these decision with both our playwrights’ and producers’ best interest in mind. As a large component of our Festival is giving our participants industry exposure, we want to hold our Festival at a time of year when most of NYC’s theatre community is in town and eager to see new work. The beginning of the new theatre season seems like the perfect time of year!
In addition, we hope to capitalize on this larger industry presence by providing a series of Festival-related events and workshop throughout the week, both for participants and for fans of New York’s oldest, continuous play Festival!
Keep checking back for more information on dates, venue, and our application!
We look forward to reading your plays.
-The 2012 OOB Team.
