ADFA is excited to announce the 2024 Edmonton Region Adult One Act Play Festival which will take place April 19th – 20th, 2024, at WWPT, Gateway Theatre, 8529 Gateway Blvd.

This year we are accepting 9 submissions. Over two days, we will have 3 sessions with 3 one acts per session depending on the running time of each. Festival acceptance will be on a first come-first serve basis. If we receive more than nine submissions, they will go onto a waiting list as they are received. If you choose to submit more than one production, please indicate which one is your first choice, as we are committed to giving this performance opportunity to as many different groups as possible, which means if we receive more than 9 different applications from 9 different groups, your first choice will be the one presented.
