The Every 28 Hours Plays is presented at the MFA by Company One Theatre in collaboration with Boston Arts Academy, Central Square Theater, Harvard Black Community and Student Theater Group, and The Theater Offensive.

The Every 28 Hours Plays was co-created and produced by Claudia Alick of the Oregon Shakespeare Festival (OSF), Dominic D’Andrea of The One-Minute Play Festival (1MPF), with the participation of theater artists around the country. Originally created and produced on the ground in the St. Louis community, and in Ferguson, the 3rd phase of the project are a coordinated series of national readings and engagements all over the country sponsored and presented by our partnering theatres.
