About Project1VOICE:
This is an internationally recognized performing arts service organization committed to presenting programs and initiatives that promote and support the American theater, specifically black playwrights. Since Project1VOICE’s inception in 2009, it has played a vital role in making theater accessible to communities, connecting with a widely diverse spectrum of artists, teens, and families, through its robust educational initiatives and public programs which have prompted cross-cultural conversations for cognitively diverse audiences.

One Play One Day is Project1VOICE’s signature event. It revives and reintroduces classic plays from the American theater canon that have been forgotten. Each year on the third Monday in June, same day staged readings of the same play are presented, hence the name, One Play One Day.
