As is the case every year, I totally forget about the Interactive Fiction competition until it's long since over and judged. (You'd think that having friends who submit things to it would help me remember. Nope.)

Anyway, I've been dipping into it here and there; I rather enjoyed "Beet the Devil", mostly for its strong narrative voice, and "Six" for similar reasons. But easily my favorite so far is "The Play" by Deirdra Kiai, playable online on her website. It's short, in the sense that it doesn't take long to reach the end, though you're very likely going to want to play it more than once. And it's not very strenuous—if you're used to IF being "pick up everything that isn't nailed down, try applying everything in your inventory to a puzzle, guess which verb the author had in mind", well, this isn't that. Go, play, enjoy, ponder. (Warning: contains theatre.)

Yeah, I played The Play several times and I'm not convinced I'm done. But I adored Beet the Devil. :D
