The One Night Only Festival takes place June 4th to 11th, 2023 at the Attic Studio and Theatre (1402 Queen Street East, Unit C3) with 18 new and diverse productions each with one performance only.  The festival was created by Vikki Velenosi, the founder of the artist-run company Space Space Revolution, with a mission to “provide a platform and a deadline to help Toronto performing artists develop their next live creation.” Each day of the festival consists of productions ranging from works in progress, staged readings, polished performances, experimental projects, brand new works, and projects about to head into the Fringe Festival circuit.
