The 24 Hour Plays

The Great Canadian Road Trip, the Orchard Project compound, and vote vote vote!

Hi, all,
Crazy stuff is afoot this summer with The 24 Hour Plays as we wrap up the big 10th Anniversary Season. This weekend, we'll be co-producing TWO shows in Canada back-to-back. Saturday night, Lindsay and Kurt will be in Montreal, co-pro-ing at the Theatre de Ste-Catherine. Sunday morning, we'll drive to Toronto and sit in the audience and watch the show that Philip and Soulpepper Theatre. Tina has made us promise to post pictures in this new blog and Philip has mentioned doing the same.

July will be all about getting ready for an August 18th collaboration with The Orchard Project, a brand-new theater company residency program (band camp for grown-ups) that invites whole companies to get away from the bustle and work at their Catskill compound (think Hyannisport, not Waco). They're inviting 24 people from 24 different theater companies from every corner of the NY theater world and putting them on a bus to the mountains. When they get there, they will be forced to do our show. Naked. OK, maybe not naked.

Is that it? No! It's not! Two short days later, we'll be starting the biggest 24 in a decade: "24 is 10: The Best of the 24 Hour Plays". Details are below.
Check the upcoming shows page for details for all three shows.

And don't forget to vote for shows for the "Best of" on the poll here.

The long-awaited "Best Of" Show. It's a-comin'!

Hey people:
For the first time, like, ever, we're bringing back the best plays from the past 10 years. Or, as we said in our lil' blurb:
"Adrenalin-fueled one-night-only classics from THE 24 HOUR PLAYS. Celebrate 10 years of the show that "redefines fresh and brings theater to a rock-and-roll audience" (Paper). It'll be the theater party of the decade!"
And so forth.... Anyway, as luck would have it, The NY International Fringe Festival is also turning 10 this year, and the nice folks asked us back as an alumni show.
Scroll down or click here to vote for your favorites.
And come to the shows! They'll be at the super-swank Lucille Lortel Theater on Christopher Street from August 20th - 27th (exact dates and times TBA) We'll have be an epic cast party that redefines carousing and brings mayhem to the rock-and-roll audience.
So, do us a favor and vote. We'll be asking for more favors to make sure this show is as memorable as it oughta be later on this summer.
Love, the 24HrCo (TinaKurtLindsayPhilipSarahLou)
