On April 15 at 7:30pm, watch 11 short (less than 3 minute) new-and-original NC plays, directed by the writers in just one rehearsal that afternoon! A talented ensemble of 16 actors, scripts in hand, perform with minimal set, props and costuming. Then YOU vote for your top six! During intermission votes are tallied, then in Act 2 watch the second short plays by the six playwrights who made it out of round one. Finally, YOU vote for the winner, who gets $100! (You get to watch the final 5 plays while votes are tallied.)
The lovely Cary Theatre (122 E Chatham St, Cary NC) provides an up-close-and-personal venue, with the lobby coffeehouse ‘Brew’ serving up delicious sandwiches, snacks and whistle-wetters. Tickets are $13 ($11 for seniors, students and vets) plus tax.
Ticket options found HERE! ($2.14 ticket fee added when purchasing online thru eTix)
This will be a high-energy hot mess of an evening, with loads of crazy fun and organized chaos. The directors and actors will join you in the audience, to also watch and laugh as their fellow artists perform.
