About the Show:

The Open Doors Short Play Festival was first conceived in 2016 as a way to recognize the talent of local NC playwrights. Submissions for 10-minute plays, only by NC residents, are taken each spring with shows being selected over the summer and then performed each September at Sonorous Road Theatre & Film Studio.

Each performance will feature all 10 plays, so we hope you'll enjoy us for a fantastic evening of diverse productions supporting local playwrights, actors, and the Raleigh theatre community!

Performance Dates:

  • September 7th @ 8PM

  • September 8th @ 8PM

  • September 9th @ 3PM

  • September 14th @ 8PM

  • September 15th @ 8M

  • September 16th @ 3PM

The show will last just over 2 hours including a 15-minute intermission.
