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 7 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 27th at 8PM (Friday)

  • September 28th at 8PM (Saturday)

  • September 29th at 3PM (Sunday)

  • October 4th at 8PM (Friday)

  • October 5th at 8PM (Saturday)

  • October 6th at 3PM (Sunday)

The show will last approximately 90 minutes including a 10-minute intermission.
