ACT Theatre and One Coast Collaboration (OCC) are proud to present the second annual ACTOne New Play Festival.   

This quick and dirty new play festival is artist centered and offers an opportunity for playwrights, directors, and actors to spend time developing new scripts and creating an atmosphere for inspirational and enthusiastic collaboration among artists.

By partnering with OCC (with their history of bi-coastal play making) we have created a program wherein world renowned playwrights can have time to strengthen their unproduced plays at a theatre with a long history of innovative and successful script development.  The use of multiple venues in ACT’s building is integral to the community-oriented spirit of the festival. After three days of work, ACT will hold open readings for artists and friends to share in an intimate and energetic experience of new play making.
