Bay One Acts Festival

A decade-long Bay Area theatre tradition, the Bay One Acts Festival showcases short plays from small independent theatre companies in the Bay Area in a dynamic annual festival celebrating the work of local playwrights and publishes a companion anthology of the produced plays.  This year’s BOA Festival is scheduled to take place at the Tides Theatre, 533 Sutter Street, San Francisco from September 14 through October 5, 2013.BOA2013GirlWeb
