Our friends at NC State University Theatre are seeking writers, directors, and performers for their 24-hour play festival event!
What is QuickScripts?
QuickScripts is “24-hour”, 10-minute play festival. The production focuses on raw storytelling through collaboration, no lavish scenery, costumes, or lighting required!
- Playwrights have 24 hours to create a 10-minute script from a secret prompt and a few guidelines.
- Directors are then given the script and have 24 hours to research and cast the play.
- Performers are then given the script 24 hours before the performance to read and research!
- The full team then is given a full day of blocking and rehearsals with the performance @ 8 PM on June 18th!
