UNITED SOLO THEATRE FESTIVAL™ is an annual international festival for solo performances held in New York City and London, UK. Through a variety of one-person shows, the Festival explores and celebrates the uniqueness of the individual. Our audiences see one-person performances from all over the world, experience foreign cultures and traditions, and learn the perspectives of people from various walks of life. Productions are selected from openly solicited submissions and presented at the highly acclaimed The Actors Centre in London’s West End and Theatre Row in the heart of the New York City theatre district on 42nd Street. Renowned solo performers as well as new talents bring their works in many categories (e.g. storytelling, puppetry, dance, multimedia, documentary, musical, improv, stand-up, poetry, magic, performance art, drama: tragedy or comedy). United Solo is a company of artists and producers with vast experience in solo performance. Artists whose work is presented at the Festival are given the opportunity to reach out to the industry, generate income from ticket sales from up to eight performances at the Festival, and receive media attention through previews, profiles, and reviews. Artists and their shows are also considered for special awards at the Festival. More information about the application process can be found here.


As most of us, you are probably impacted by the current public health crisis. As our festivals are scheduled in September, we are relying on communications from the authorities who expect the situation in the fall should be back to normal. We look forward to returning to a state of stability where we can express ourselves creatively through the art of solo performance. In the meantime, we will remain in close contact with the authorities and participants alike, to ensure all guidelines and policies are closely followed, and that our protocols are adjusted if need be. Thank you for your commitment.
