Superfun Playwright Thingy To Try  Reply with quote  

So this weekend my brother and I did something called "Playmakers", which in other cities is called Turn around theatre or 24 hour theatre or overnight theatre.

What it is: writers, actors and directors get together and throw topics and ideas at each other for about an hour. Then, the writers go home and write a ten minute play based on that discussion and have it ready by like, 8am the next morning. They mail it off to the actors and director that they've matched up with at the meeting.

Then the actors and director get together to practice, usually having a script-in-hand performance ready by the afternoon or evening and the play is performed.

Has anyone else done this? If you haven't its definitely worth trying. Its a blast Smile

My friend Ian, who is a writer/director did it and had a great experience with it.
