24 Hour Plays 2013

24 Hour Plays 2013What is it?

Lancaster’s 24 Hour Plays is a special night of experimental theater where six writers, six directors, twenty actors, and a production team come together to write, rehearse and produce six plays over the course of 24 hours!

This year the plays will be performed for the public at the end of the 24 hour creation process on Saturday, November 9 at 7pm (doors open @ 6pm) at Tellus360, 24 East King St., Lancaster, PA.

Since their inception in New York City in 1995, 24 Hour Plays (www.24hourplays.com) have been performed for audiences throughout the United States and the world – attracting both professional and amateur theater artists.  Talent involved in past 24 Hour Plays includes Jennifer Aniston, Rosie Perez, Kevin Spacey, Vince Vaughn and Elijah Wood.

This will be the 3rd annual 24 Hour Plays event in Lancaster produced by Wood Stove House. The first was a sold out performance at The Candy Factory in November 2011. You can find a recap of that production here. Last year in November 2012 we staged the event at Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster. You can listen to our podcast recap of Lancaster’s 24 Hour Plays 2012.

Hear Producer Steve Carlson discussing this year’s production with Cary Burkett from WITF Radio’s Arts & Culture Desk (89.5 FM).
