24 Hour Play Festivaltheatre KAPOW and WAX IDIOTCAL FILMS
team up to present the fourth annual
24 Hour Play Festival
October 17 - 18, 2014
Stockbridge Theatre, Derry, NH

Performance: Saturday, October 18, 2014, 7.30 pm
Stockbridge Theatre, Derry, NH

Some plays require years to write, cast, rehearse and stage, but not these!  The festival will present five 10-15 minute plays created entirely in just twenty-four hours.  At 7.30 pm on Friday, October 17, 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 18, the curtain rises! That’s it, just 24 hours to write, rehearse and mount an evening of new plays.

Meet the writers and directors here.
