"I'm thrilled to continue our partnership with The Den Theatre and embark on a new challenge in this amazing community," comments #1MPF Producing Artistic Director Dominic D'Andrea. "We've had six amazing years working with the Chicago theatre community at-large and being able to change things up and reframe the Festival as a gathering of women identified artists and women's voices seems like an opportunity that is needed - and it feels very right. Chicago has the most amazing cohort of women working in the American theatre and it's exciting to gather them in a forum like the One-MInute Play Festival," adds D'Andrea.
