2015 One Act Festival

Silver Spring Stage’s annual summer tradition continues over two weekends in August, with a different program of five plays each weekend.

As always, variety is a hallmark of the One Act Festival: there are comedies and dramas, and our 10 playwrights have created characters that range from a pair of rag dolls to a pair of political prisoners, from a symphony conductor to a man conversing with his cat.

Be sure to come both weekends!

Silver Spring Stage is seeking play proposals from directors who are interested in working with Silver Spring Stage in the 2016-17 season.  We will accept up to two director proposals per director. (The Stage also presents a summer one-act festival, but submissions for that are handled separately. This notice is for our mainstage season of full-length plays only.)

The Stage will be looking to present one classic play as part of the 2016-17 season.  Directors are welcome to submit one classic play instead of or in addition to one contemporary play.
