Since 1995, it has produced over 1,500 one-act plays. The Strawberry One-Act Festival features a playoff-style competition, in which the audience members vote for their favorites, selecting six finalists. Reflecting the diversity written into the mission of its presenter, the Strawberry One-Act and Theater Festival features plays that vary in length (from 15 to 90 minutes) and deal with wide array of topics, from stories of human connection and comedic takes on love and sex to works dealing with pressing social and political issues like teenage suicide, women's rights and gun control.
