Fast Play Fest

WHAT CAN YOU CREATE IN A WEEKEND??

TBG writers, directors, and actors have 24-hours of scheduled time over two days to create a festival of short plays from scratch!

Kickoff – Friday, August 10th at 7pm

Show and Party – Sunday, August 12th at 7pm

Tickets available for the show and party HERE!

How it works!

All participants meet during the Kickoff session on Friday night to pair up casts, directors and writers, get to know each other  and begin the creative process. Writers will write their plays Friday night to Saturday morning. Directors will receive their plays and meet with their playwright Saturday afternoon. Rehearsals with actors take place Saturday from 4 – 10pm. There will be final rehearsals Sunday morning or afternoon and tech Sunday afternoon (schedules will vary). Ready or not, the show goes on at 7 pm Sunday night! Party starts after!
