24 Hour Play FestivalOctober 25 - 26, 2013
Stockbridge Theatre, Derry, NH

Performance: Saturday, October 26, 2013, 7.30 pm
Stockbridge Theatre, Derry, NH

Some plays require years to write, cast, rehearse and stage, but not these!  The festival will present six 10-15 minute plays created entirely in just twenty-four hours.  At 7.30 pm on Friday, October 25, a group of playwrights will meet at the theatre to learn the theme for the festival, receive their list of guidelines, a director, and their cast. The next morning, the scripts they write that night will be distributed to the actors and directors to rehearse.  At 7.30 pm on Saturday, October 26, the curtain rises! That’s it, just 24 hours to write, rehearse and mount an evening of new plays.

Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for live updates throughout the process!
