Registrations are now open for writers to take on the challenge of writing an original short play in one evening – and watch it transformed to stage the very next day, scripts down!
24 Hour Theatre Illawarra – Bridge Street Theatre Coniston
Briefing Friday 1st September | Performance Saturday 2nd September 2017
Produced by Luke Berman, Black Box Theatre
24 Hour Theatre is the ultimate theatre challenge for writers and actors. Writers are faced with the harshest of deadlines, a completed script written in the middle of the night which MUST be completed by the morning.
Your team of actors will be kept secret until the night before and you will need to include stimulus topics given to you to use in your play.
In 2016, we saw another wonderful showcase of local plays. Alexander Cuff’s sci- fi comedy Pieces of Time was selected, and redeveloped to take to Short+Sweet Sydney. The newly titled and adrenaline charged ten-minute piece Time Squad went on to be selected as the best play of its week, and performed in the prestigious Short+Sweet Sydney Gala Finals starring Bradley Ward, Alex Groombridge, Sam Sweeting and Sam Lovell.

This year, plays may also be chosen to be redeveloped to progress to Short+Sweet Sydney as well as the inaugural Short+Sweet Illawarra festival launching October 2018.
Actor and Director registrations will be opening soon.
