One-Act Plays at the Marfa Football Field —  the culminating event to our weeklong 10th Annual Playwriting Workshops with the Marfa High School held in April. We present four award-winning student one-act plays written by students with our 2021 Guest Playwright Octavio Solis.


Under Solis's tutelage, each student writes their own original one-act play. One winning play and one honorable mention is chosen from each grade and awarded prizes. The winning plays are presented to the public with actors from the community. 


Since the program launched in 2011, students have written over 1,000 plays.


The annual Playwriting Program and One-Act Plays support the Marfa Live Arts’ mission of bringing the performing arts to West Texas, educating the area’s youth, and bringing the community together. This program has become the cornerstone of Marfa Live Arts’ education program and exemplifies the mission of our organization.


As part of participating in the playwriting program, Solis also serves as a judge in reviewing the student written plays. Playwriting classes are offered to the school at no cost and the public performance will be free and open to the community.
