So, You Want to Be Playwright? You Have 24 Hours. . .

Playhouse on Park celebrates its fourth year hosting a 24-Hour Play Festival. 

Theater enthusiasts meet on Friday, July 31 at 8 pm to receive their assignments; the performance is at 8 pm on Saturday, Aug. 1, just 24 hours after the first meeting!

Participants will be assigned into casts at random, each with one director and one playwright. Through the night playwrights write one-act plays, while everyone else leaves to get their beauty rest for the next morning. Directors and actors take the following day to rehearse. Playwrights return later that afternoon to help with costumes and props.

If you are at least 16 years old, have an undying passion for theater, and are up for the challenge, register now. Participation is free. Preference is given to those with experience and who register before July 24.

Performance tickets are $10, general admission. To purchase tickets, please call the Playhouse box office at 860-523-5900 x10 or visit www.playhouseonpark.org. For additional registration information, call 860-523-5900 x15 or email dloveland@playhousetheatregroup.org. Playhouse on Park is located on 244 Park Road, West Hartford, CT, 06119.
