The 24-Hour Playwrights Festival is the ultimate dramatic marathon at Sehome. This annual event takes place at the end of the first semester and lasts for one night only!
On Friday night of 24, a group of student-playwrights gather in The Little Theater to create brand-new plays. In this overnight event, they team-write a script completely from scratch starting only when the writers arrive.
On Saturday morning, teams of directors, actors and tech designers. They are greeted with these never-before-seen pieces and turn them into fully-staged performances with costumes, props, lights, sets and fully-memorized lines.
That same evening, we open the house to an audience for the world-premieres of these brilliant performances.
What will the plays be about this year? Who knows?
