Be the first to get tickets for DC Black Theatre & Arts Festival’s One-Act Battle. More than a competition, this one-act competition is more like fighting Muhammad Ali in his prime! The One-Act Battle is a  five  day competition divided into 4 categories; Drama, Comedy, Adult theme and Anything Goes. Each night the audience cast their votes to select the best play of the evening.  The winning play from each evening moves on the final  round; the battle to end all battles! The right to hold the  title “DCBTF’s Heavy Weight Champion of the World!”
