The Roles

Writers – selected for their skill, imagination and nerves of steel

Directors – a mix of experienced student directors plus some reckless newcomers

Actors – As many performers as are prepared to take on the exciting task of performing a play after only 5 hours rehearsal

How it Works

After a short briefing on Friday, the writers stay up overnight and write a short 10-minute play.

The actors and directors meet at 9am the following morning to read the plays over breakfast.

They then rehearse from 10am-5pm. Then there is a quick technical rehearsal. And at 6pm the plays are performed!
