One person festival photo.The 2019 edition of The One Festival at New World School of the Arts is upon us - and with twenty-four plays, this is the biggest festival in the NWSA Theatre division's history. The One Festival is a collection of fifteen-minute plays written, directed and acted by BFA seniors. In four programs over the course of two weeks, the themes of these plays are relevant, varied and personal and will take audiences on what is on the conscience of these artists. From drag queens to beauty queens, the American race war, chronic depression, facing fatherhood, the impending future of technology on humans, women in prison, Jackson Pollock and Russian nesting dolls; The One Festival is an important display of vibrant artistic styles and intricate stories about the human condition.
