Off-IPAY 2020 presents an opportunity for artists, producers and agents to present their productions for young audiences to 500 US-based theatre professionals. Off-IPAY Independent Productions can include full-length productions, pitch sessions, and/or a group of artistic companies organised around specific cultural region or genre.
