On January 5th six playwrights will receive their writing prompts: a prop, line of dialogue, and location.
They leave to furiously write until the sun comes up and then hand off their plays to six directors who have been assigned actors from a hat. They take the day to rehearse the plays and then perform them that night in front of an audience. Such a whirlwind process can only be applied to Acorn Productions’ annual 24-Hour Theatre Project; this year with the added bonus of an encore performance for the first time in the 24-Hour Play Project history!
