Miami 1-Acts Festival Winter Session

December 21 through 23, 2012.

New Theatre is presenting its Miami 1-Acts Festival (M1A) Winter Session on December 21 through 23. Due to its big success at is inaugural kick off this past summer, the fundraiser, intended as an annual event, will now be a bi-annual event. Inspired by New Theatre’s mission of producing “new works that speak to and about a diverse contemporary audience,” the festival will help raise much needed funds to help New Theatre continue to produce plays that stimulate, provoke, challenge, and entertain our multicultural South Florida community. At the same time it brings together over 75 artists: playwrights, directors, actors, stage manager, crew members and support staff who volunteer their time to make the event a great success.

This year’s Miami 1-Acts Festival includes 16 nationally and locally recognized playwrights and artists, presented in 2 programs (in no specific order)
