for this incredible, one-night-only event!

What is it? We lock five writers in the theater overnight, hand them five random (audience-supplied) script elements, then give them until 6am the next morning to write a one act play! The next morning five directors and a slew of actors arrive, and together they rehearse and produce the show ... performing it in front of a live audience at 8pm.

FIVE NEW PLAYS, ALL WRITTEN, REHEARSED, AND PERFORMED IN UNDER 24 HOURS!

Who's writing? Who's directing? Who's acting?
