A one-act play is a short play that takes place in one act consisting of one or more scenes. The "one-act" is often referred to as the "short story" of plays because the story is told in a concise and creatively efficient manner. One-act plays, as with full length plays, come in all genres: comedies, dramas and musicals. At Lunchbox Theatre we program mainly comedies and musicals as we provide a noon-time oasis for our busy audience members.
