One-Act Play Festival

January 23, 6:30 pm8 pm.

Life, it seems, often feels like a series of one-acts. We all have experiences that play out like short dramas. And that is, perhaps, why the one-act dramatic form is so popular. For the National Arts Club’s fourth annual One-Act Play Festival, we present a series of short, compelling, meaningful works that reveal heightened interactions among people—not only for the characters involved in the story, but also for all of us out there in the audience. A good one-act play tells a story as appropriate to the stage as it is to real life, our lives. Why do we fall in love with people not available to us? How can strangers help us live better lives? What effect do chance encounters have on us? Come take a seat with us to see stories unfold in ways that matter to us all.
