Stage Left's annual national contest for the WORST 10-minute play, DrekFest is on a mission to expose bad writing for what it really is: damn funny. We are not out to make fun of writers or those who love them. We ask good writers to intentionally write awful plays so that we may laugh at them.

It's Time to Drek the Halls!

 Tis the season to be crappy!




At ComedySportz Theatre Chicago

929 W. Belmont in Chicago

$10 advance, $12 at the door

One night only!

That’s right – DrekFest is back – and it’s worse than ever!


Playwrights from all around the planet compete to entertain you with the WORST 10 minute play they can possibly up-chuck onto paper. And YOU will judge who is the Worst of the Worst!


And this time they'll be dishing up the worst holiday pageants, TV specials, sickening sentimental slime, misguided morality tales and whatever else is cooking over their sputtering Yule logs.


Cash bar, special holiday raffle prizes, hilarity ... and who knows, maybe even a special visit from the Man in Red.
