Playmates Illawarra returns for its 17th consecutive year of bringing together the many theatre and entertainment companies in the Wollongong region – and is now the longest running annual theatrical event.

Inspired from the TV comedy series Whose Line is it Anyway? – the audience will dictate what the teams of actors will play out, with much loved games such as Opera, Slow Motion Commentary, Scenes from A Hat, Moving Bodies, Party Quirks and Show Stopping Number.

24 Hour Theatre Illawarra

From blank page to the stage – in 24 Hours!

7:30pm Saturday 6th August 2022
at the Bridge Street Theatre Coniston
(home of the Phoenix Theatre Co.)

Produced by Black Box Productions
Executive Producer Luke Berman

Produced as part of Black Box Production’s residency at the Bridge Street Theatre and the Phoenix Theatre Co.

Illawarra’s most exciting theatre challenge returned to the stage after taking a long vacation during the COVID pandemic. This year we showcased seven short plays that were written, rehearsed and performed all within 24 hours.

Congratulations to all our writers, actors and production team members who each took on the challenge of sailing into the unknown, and we are happy to say we all navigated the waters triumphantly.

Several of our 24 Hour Theatre Illawarra plays this year will be given a second life mid-September at the Short+Sweet Illawarra Theatre festival.
