About the Show

On November 21st, 2022, distinguished artists from across the nation’s entertainment industry will come together at Town Hall for the 22nd annual production of The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway — and the first live return of this flagship event since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway are an intensive theatrical endeavor where artists write, direct, and perform six original short plays within 24 hours. 

The 24 Hour Plays begin the evening before the performance, when the actors, writers, directors, and production staff gather for the Meet and Greet. In one dynamic hour, each person shares a prop and costume, and actors show off their special skills and something they’ve always wanted to do on stage. With this creative fuel in mind, the playwrights stay up all night writing world-premiere short plays. In the morning, the directors and actors return to launch into Broadway’s fastest rehearsal process and at 8 PM, the curtain rises on a performance of six never-before-seen new works.


Who is eligible? All New York City students are eligible to claim a free mezzanine ticket to The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway! This includes high school, middle school, college, and graduate students!

Is there an age limit? We typically recommend The 24 Hour Plays for audience members age sixteen and older. Because the plays are written the night before, we cannot guarantee the exact content of the pieces until the day of the performance.
