Here’s how it works: 16 writers gather at 11pm at Horizon Theatre on a Saturday night. They are randomly paired and told to produce a 12-minute script by 7am. “We’re not done” is not an option. At 8am 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 8pm.

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. And this time around, we tried out something totally new. The writers gathered together to collaborate on the basic premise for a play using one protagonist who appears throughout. They then paired off to write unique scenes using some of the same characters. After the first 4 pieces were completed, they gathered together again to form new smash-ups.

The directors came in bright and early eager to take the hall and run. After the scavenger hunt for the day kicked into gear with the casting draft. Actors arrived and after shots of caffeine, rehearsals were underway. Costumes, sound and props were added to the mix and the shows came together.
