The Riant Theatre Company’s Strawberry One-Act Festival began in 1995 as a competition to help one emerging playwright secure a development deal and develop a full-length play. The event in its entirety, is a competition in which the audience and invited industry judges cast their votes to select the best play of the season.  Twice annually, hundreds of plays from across the country are submitted for the competition.  Plays move from the 1st Round to the Semi-Finals and then the Finals.  The playwright of the winning play receives a $1,500.00 grant and the opportunity to have a full-length play developed by the Riant Theatre Company.  Awards are presented for Best Play, Best Director, Best Actor and Best Actress.

The Award Ceremony & Performance will be on Sunday, February 22nd at 5:00pm.  In addition, some of the plays in the festival will be selected for publication in The Riant Theatre Company anthology: The Best Plays From The Strawberry One-Act Festival: Volume 9.
