Brand new short plays, all written, rehearsed and performed in one weekend: page to stage in 24 hours, twice!

Fifty free PUBLIC TICKETS are available now for the two 9:30pm performances of the 48, made possible by our November production of The Norman Conquests!
These FREE TICKETS are first-come, first-serve — reserve yours now!



On Thursday, October 10, a motley crew of actors, writers, and directors will gather at Sylvia Center, where they will assemble into teams and pick a theme for the first night of the festival.

Those designated as “writers” have approximately TWELVE HOURS to deliver a ten-minute script to the rest of their team, who then have about the same amount of time to memorize, rehearse, costume, and score their infant one-act before the curtain rises Friday night!

The teams are re-shuffled in between the first night’s two performances, and the whole masochistic cycle begins again a second day.

New shows each night — catch both nights for the full experience!
