Lancaster’s 24 Hour Plays is a special night of experimental theater where six writers, six directors, twenty-four actors, and a production team come together to write, rehearse and produce six plays over the course of 24 hours!
This year the plays will be performed for the public at the end of the 24 hour creation process on Saturday, November 15 at 7pm (doors open @ 6pm) at Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster, 328 W. Orange St., Lancaster, PA.
Since their inception in New York City in 1995, 24 Hour Plays (www.24hourplays.com) have been performed for audiences throughout the United States and the world – attracting both professional and amateur theater artists. Talent involved in past 24 Hour Plays includes Jennifer Aniston, Rosie Perez, Kevin Spacey, Vince Vaughn and Elijah Wood.
This will be the 4th annual 24 Hour Plays event in Lancaster. The first was a sold out performance at The Candy Factory in November 2011 and was produced by Wood Stove House and Creative Works of Lancaster. You can find a recap of that production here. In November 2012 the event was staged at Community Mennonite Church of Lancaster. You can listen to a podcast recap of Lancaster’s 24 Hour Plays 2012. The 2013 production took place at Tellus360. Both the 2012 and 2013 events were produced by Wood Stove House with the production team consisting of Steve Carlson, Jason Mundok and Susanne Mundok.
This will be the first year that Creative Works will be solely responsible for the production, though the lead, Steve Carlson, has been involved in all four events.
You can hear Steve discussing the 2013 production with Cary Burkett from WITF Radio’s Arts & Culture Desk (89.5 FM).
