8th Annual New Jersey One-Minute Play Festival coming to Hoboken

×

HOBOKEN — The New Jersey One-Minute Play Festival (#1MPF) is the country’s largest and longest continually running community-engaged theatre project, aimed at exploring local topics, ideas, trends, and seeding conversations for, by, and about artists and citizens of New Jersey. The marathon evening of one-minute plays by some of New Jersey’s established and emerging playwrights and directors will have three performances: Saturday, June 30 at 8 p.m., Sunday, July 1 at 3 p.m. and 7 p.m. All Performances at Mile Square Theatre (1400 Clinton St., Hoboken).
“We’re excited to celebrate 8 years of 1MPF in NJ, and 3 years of partnership with Mile Square Theatre,” says 1MPF Producing Artistic Director Dominic D’Andrea. “This moment in our country is full of strife, uncertainty, and a feeling of being more divided than ever. It’s also a moment that is fueled with hope, visions of the future, and asking big and important questions. All of this is reflected in the work, and as a community, these artists are grappling with some necessary bigger-picture ideas. The NJ community should come and experience this. It’s exciting.”
Chris O’Connor, Mile Square Theatre’s Artistic Director adds, “We hosted the New Jersey One-Minute Play Festival last year, and it was a great success. It was thrilling to have so many New Jersey theatre artists in our theatre, creating such thought-provoking material. It was a new experience for our local audience, and people were really delighted by the work. We are proud to host again this year and to open our doors to the New Jersey theatre community.”
