24 Hour Playwriting Competition

January 24 @ 6:00 pm - January 25 @ 10:00 pm

The time has come for Tuesday Night Café Theatre’s much awaited annual 24 hour play festival!

How it works

STEP 1: 5 playwrights selected from a number of applicants are given the first and last lines of an (as of yet) unwritten play on Thursday January 23rd at 5 pm. They then have only 24 hours to write that play.

STEP 2: The playwrights/directors meet with their cast on Friday evening (January 24th) and are given another 24 hours to put together and rehearse the show they have written.

STEP 3: After these 24 hours of rehearsal, the now sleep-deprived casts perform their awesome shows for a full house of exuberant and eager audience members, and a panel of expert judges(!), in hopes of being selected as the superior play and living in immortal glory!

Performances will take place on Saturday January 25th
Doors open at 6:30pm
Performances start at 7pm
