Play Announcement – 24 Hour Theatre 2016

Rehearsals are well underway for Black Box Theatre’s 24 Hour Theatre Project – tonight only at the Bridge Street Theatre.

Last night, six original short plays were written and handed to our team of brave actors who are currently blocking their pieces and learning their lines and are primed for the ultimate theatre-creation challenge.

We are pleased to announce an incredibly strong lineup of plays with an energetic and committed cast with the best scripts yet to be written in a Black Box 24 Hour Theatre production.
