APE's 24 Hour Play Fest

When: Event has passed. Watch this page for updates.

The ultimate play fest — Art in the Public Eye style.

70 volunteers with some or no theatrical experience gather on a Friday night to form 9 randomly selected teams – each with one writer, one director and 3 or 4 actors. A theme for Play Fest is announced and each team has one hour to meet before dispersing for the night.

Writers set to work writing a 10 minute play which is complete by 5 AM the next morning. Directors and actors rehearse all day for an 8 PM performance on Saturday! Plus – audience votes decide the best play, actor and actress. And yes, extra votes can be purchased for $1!
