SINCE 2001, stars from Broadway, film and TV have gathered to write, rehearse and perform new plays in 24 hours. Extraordinary artists race the clock, forge enduring creative partnerships and leave everything on the stage in a singular evening of live theater.
Proceeds from The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway support our non-profit activities throughout the year, including education programming with students from middle school to college, professional development for emerging artists through The 24 Hour Plays: Nationals, our free Viral Monologues series and our partner productions all around the world.

Yes! New plays are written, rehearsed, memorized (no scripts in hand!), and performed in just 24 hours.
Is the show 24 hours long?
No! Our full process is 24 hours long, but The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway generally runs about two hours with a fifteen minute intermission.
