24-Hour Playwriting Project 2019

Nov. 23

A perennial favorite, the premise is simple - take four playwrights, lock them the theater overnight to create a show that will be performed on stage the very next evening. They are given a series of items, costumes, sounds and lines that must be included, all before learning the overarching theme of the play. Following a sleepless night of writing, they meet their directors after breakfast for some edits and then their scripts are whisked away to be printed. At lunch they meet the actors who will be performing their work. A few hours later, the curtain rises.The winner is determined by both the audience and a panel of professional judges.
