24 Hr Theatre Banner_nodate


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.

Our teams of actors will start rehearsals in the morning and will have only that day to learn their lines, interpret the vision of the writer, block their play and perform that same evening in front of a live audience.

Black Box Theatre launched its first 24 Hour Theatre at the Tap Gallery in Sydney, and since has performed annually in the Illawarra since 2014.

Continuing Black Box Theatre’s mission to bridge the Illawarra theatre community with Sydney – two plays from previous years have gone on to recieve critical acclaim at Sydney’s Short+Sweet festival with Tom Peach’s Doctor’s Orders and Alexander Cuff’s Time Squad, which was voted by judges as the best play of its week in 2017.
