NETC is proud to announce the first annual The 24 Hour Plays: NETC! Take your conference experience to the next level with this intensive marathon event, working together with artists from across the country to write, direct, and perform six original plays within 24 hours.
The process for The 24 Hour Plays begins at 10 p.m. on October 25th, the night before the performance. The writers, directors, actors, and production staff gather for an orientation where they are asked to share one costume piece, one prop, a special skill, and to reveal something that they have always wanted to do on stage. Using these items as inspiration, the writers spend the night developing 10-minute plays. At 9 a.m. the next morning (October 26th), the actors receive their roles and the directors arrive to begin rehearsal. Less than 12 hours later, they must be ready to perform in front of the live NETC audience!
The 24 Hour Plays® brings together extraordinary artists to create time-limited theater around the world. In addition to The 24 Hour Plays on Broadway and The 24 Hour Musicals, regular events take place in London, Los Angeles, Dublin, Germany, Minneapolis, Athens, Helsinki, Mexico City and Florence.
