24 Hour Plays
Six writers, six directors, 23 actors and a production team will write, rehearse and perform six ten-minute plays in a 24-hour period. There will be only one performance of the plays.
The six plays will have undergone a process that starts Friday evening, Nov. 14, with writers choosing their actors from a pool of talent. The six writers will write through the night and hand their work to the directors early Saturday morning, Nov. 15, the day of the performance. After negotiating for their choice of play, directors will work with their actors and a crew of stage technicians to prepare for the 7 p.m. performance.
Since its inception in New York City in 1995, 24 Hour Plays (24hourplays.com) have been performed for audiences throughout the United States and the world – attracting both professional and amateur theater artists. Talent involved in past 24 Hour Plays includes Jennifer Aniston, Rosie Perez, Kevin Spacey, Vince Vaughn and Elijah Wood.
The Lancaster production will feature veteran members of the Lancaster theater scene working alongside artists that may be new to the audience.
Previously produced by Wood Stove House, this is the first year Creative Works of Lancaster will take the lead, after serving as a partner for the 2011 production.
