24 Hour Play Fun

Posted by jcoros43 - October 8, 2010

This past weekend I had the pleasure of partaking in the 24 Hour play festival at Macaulay.  Davi Santos, a friend and fellow student of the school, spearheaded the event which was co-hosted with the AWE Creative group.

Saturday Night, 40 students and professionals were broken into 8 groups–each with 1 writer, 1 director, and 3-4 actors.  All writers are given two random lines (“It’s 3:45am, that’s absurd.” & “Stop what you’re doing and look at me!”) and a random prop (a Barack Obama mask).  That night the writers pull together a script for a ten minute play.  All the next day the directors and actors put it on its feet. The curtain goes up at 8pm, twenty-four hours after the adventure began.
