24-Hour Theater Festival!

On Saturday, December 10th, five playwrights and twelve actors spent the day playfully rehearsing five brand new ten minute plays. The afternoon culminated in an informal performance for family and friends. There were lights, sound effects, props and few improvised costume choices. The results from this day of encapsulated creativity were fantastic.

Each writer was given a few prompts and the challenge of writing ten pages over night. The results were incredibly diverse.
Here are our titles:
“The Wings” by Jesse Brooks
“Yvon and Jane” by Emily Talpey
“A Struggle with Eccentricity” by Ian Irvine
“Surgery” by Bodhi Small
“Treasure Hunt” by Emma Irvine

We hope that these plays will have the chance to develop and be performed as part of our winter play weekend on March 3rd and 4th.

A mighty thank you to all participants and audience members for making this new project so joyful and successful.unspecified-copy
