24 Hour Plays is back October 1st!

The 24 Hour Plays: Lancaster 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, October 1 at 7pm (doors open @ 6: 30 pm) at the Masonic Hall at the Visitor Center, 38 Penn Square, 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 6th annual 24 Hour Plays event in Lancaster. The first was a sold out performance at The Candy Factory in November 2011 and we are anticipating a sold out house again this year. Get your tickets here: https://lancaster24.eventbrite.com
