The Strawberry One-Act Festival, the brainchild of Artistic Director, Van Dirk Fisher, is a play competition in which the audience and the theatre's judges cast their votes to select the best play of the season. Twice a year, hundreds of plays from across the country are submitted for the competition, of which 33 were chosen to compete. Plays move from the 1st round to the semi-finals and then the finals. The playwright of the winning play receives $1,500 and the opportunity to have a full-length play developed by the Riant.
