Play-in-a-Day 2016 Show
The final performance of six original plays at 20:00
Saturday, September 24 at 8pm
Tickets €10 advance/€12 evening
One theme. Six Writers. Six Directors. 21 actors in 6 casts.
24 Hours to Write, Rehearse and Perform an original play.
Here’s How It Works…
The event begins at 8pm on Friday September 23rd, at TLS Frankfurt. Approximately 40 people who have successfully applied to be a part of Play-in-a-Day will meet in person to find out what the theme of the festival is. The range of skills and experience varies from the polished performer to the total novice.
A random ballot is held, and teams of 5 to 7 people are formed, consisting of a writer, a director and 3-5 actors – their collective goal to write, direct and perform six short 10-12 minute plays, all connected by the theme.
The writers write their original scripts all night long.
The next morning at 7am, the directors meet with their respective writers to discuss their scripts, and then at 8am, the actors gather and rehearsals begin.
Twelve hours later, at 8pm Saturday 24 September, the shows begin.
