Here’s how it works: 16 writers gather at 10pm at Horizon Theatre on a Saturday night. They are randomly paired and told to produce a 12-minute script by 6am. “We’re not done” is not an option. At 7am on Sunday eight directors come in, are handed scripts and the day begins. The directors cast their shows, call the actors and begin rehearsing frantically, in hallways and driveways, lobbies and dressing rooms. The show goes up, ready or not, at 8:30pm.

Welcome to the 13th installment of the 24-Hour Plays. They exist to challenge the Atlanta theater community - force them to make big bold choices and trust their instincts. We have formed new friendships and rekindled old ones reveling in the collaborative spirit.

Last night the writers arrived with plenty of sugar and ideas. We invited the winners of our Young Playwrights Festival, 20 high school and college students, along with a few 24-Hour Play regulars and a few other Atlanta professionals. The writers began at 10pm last night and the directors came in bright and early eager to take the hall and run. Actors arrived and after shots of caffeine, rehearsals were underway. Costumes, sound and props were added to the mix and the shows came together.
