THE ANNUAL 24 HOUR PLAY FESTIVAL

September 9, 2017

Performance of the plays - Saturday, September 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The 24 Hour Plays is collaborative event that takes place in a 1 day-period. Multiple groups work toward a common goal - creating a short, devised play to present. Every group member has the choice of being a playwright, director, or actor. You can even choose to do all three! There is also a technical side to the event, like any theatre production. So you can work there if you like. Each group will be given a random mix of props, a line, and a genre.
