The 24 Hour Plays: Writers & Books

Writers & Books 740 University Avenue, Rochester, NY

Join us for the unexpected: five 10-minute plays conceived of, written, directed, rehearsed, and performed within 24 hours. Five writers, five directors, and five actors gather at Writers & Books on Friday evening at 7 pm, with the actors presenting themselves in costume, contributing random props, and exhibiting their special talents (think accents, songs, cartwheels).

Responding to these provocations, five playwrights write through the night, penning original scripts. The directors return at 7 am to wrangle over and claim the scripts they want to direct. Actors re-enter at 8 am to discover what play they’ve been written into. A unique evening of plays—some comedic, others poignant— is born. Join Writers & Books for two performances at 7pm and 9pm!
