Untitled Theater's 24/7 Festival

A week-long festival of one act plays, all created in a day!

Click here for a day by day schedule of writers, directors and actors!

Untitled Theater's 24/7 Festival consists of a week straight of plays created in a day! The writers start writing at 10pm the night before, and rehearsals begin at 9am of that day. Each day has a theme, and they are all part of Untitled Theater Company #61's mission to present a modern theater of the absurd.

Some useful definitions: "Found Text" plays are comprised in whole or in large part from existing text. "Transvestite Melodramas" deal with the theme of one gender interpreting another. The "Mini-NeuroFest" features neurological conditions, from aphasia to savantism to Tourette's Syndrome -- many of the topics that one might see in a book by Oliver Sacks. And the "Protest Plays" will follow in the political protest tradition of Brecht, Havel, and even Michael Moore. A full schedule is listed below:


MONDAY, MARCH 14: Jewish Legends
TUESDAY, MARCH 15: Found Text Plays
THURSDAY, MARCH 17: Transvestite Melodrama Plays
FRIDAY, MARCH 18: Mini-NeuroFest (a preview of next year's NeuroFest)
