New Collection Published By Indie Theater Now

This year, United Solo Festival introduces another new collection of scripts published by Indie Theater Now, a digital library of contemporary plays. A newly launched selection of solo plays was compiled after reviewing one hundred theatre productions presented at the Festival this past season. Solo artists from around the globe brought their shows to the world’s largest solo theatre festival at Theatre Row on 42nd Street in New York City. Each production offered a unique story in various performance categories including drama, multimedia, puppetry, stand‑up, and others. The Festival concluded by awarding selected artists for their excellence in solo performance and by recommending several plays for publication on Indie Theater Now.


The United Solo Collection offers exposure to outstanding theatre plays and promotes solo scripts among theatre goers, actors, directors, educators, students, and library subscribers. The collection can be found at, run by The New York Theatre Experience, Inc. (NYTE) and curated by Martin Denton. Users may browse and purchase digital versions of plays to read them online.


Artists interested in participating in the United Solo Theatre Festival this year are encouraged to submit their solo works by April 22, 2013. Selected shows will be presented at Theatre Row this fall, and will have the opportunity to be considered for the next collection published by Indie Theater Now.
