Here's an update from the 24 Hour Playfest! Tonight the playwrights, actors, and directors all met to get the Fest started. First, the playwrights all drew from a hat how many characters are to be in their play. Then, from that they each, selected their actors, again, by draw. And then the directors were selected. And finally, a theme.
Now, the first theme chosen was something not everyone in the room was enthusiastic about: 'politics'. The mention of that word drew a sort of collective sigh. And it was suggested that another theme be chosen.
So our official theme is: 'that's not true.'
Tomorrow I arrive at the rehearsal space at 9a and work all day until about 4p. We'll transfer over to the performance venue, and do a run-through in the space, and then showtime is at 7:30!
Should be exciting to see what we create! More soon.
The performance is sold out. Info: 24-Hour Playfest
