The Short Play Festival features six short plays in one performance each night over one weekend


2nd Annual Short Play Festival
Indy Eleven Theater, April 15, 16 and 17
Big Impact of Small Plays

Cross pollination is so important to a healthy theatrical scene

In one venue, on one weekend, IndyFringe and the Indiana Writers Center will bring together Indianapolis theatre groups to work alongside each other and produce the plays of emerging artists. Six short plays were chosen from works created over the past year at the Indiana Writers Center. The writers are teamed with local theatre companies to direct and cast the plays. Four of the playwrights have never had work produced before on any stage.

This festival gives writers, directors and performers a chance to meet and work alongside each other, which in turn provides opportunities to work on future projects. The plays have been written by playwrights who don't know the rules.....and therefore, they feel free to do anything.

The subjects of the plays is wide ranging.
In one, a couple in a restaurant agree to receive a free meal. To do so, however, they must confront their worst fears in a kind of game show gone wrong.  A women who writes suicide notes on contract breaks one of her own business rules and experiences the consequences. An elderly woman is confronted with information that she may not be the person she always thought she was. A small group of people at a city council meeting prepare for the end of the world.
