(New York) As a 10th Anniversary celebration of both “The 24 Hour Plays” and Fringenyc, the 24 Hour Company is remounting 24 classic shows for the first time ever. The plays feature original casts and other alumni, including boldface names Rachel Dratch, Elizabeth Berkley, Michael Mastro, Ally Sheedy, Andre Royo, muMs, and Brent Cox. The 10-year retrospective includes 10-minute plays by David Lindsay-Abaire, Warren Leight, Teresa Rebeck, Jeff Whitty, Christopher Shinn, Will Eno, Adam Bock, Mike Doughty, John Belluso, Elizabeth Meriwether, Michael John Garces and many more. Following The 24 Hour Plays tradition of “instant theatrical thrills” (NY Times), all rehearsals will begin the morning of the shows themselves, for what the NY Post has called “a high wire act without a net”.

The 24 Hour Company
In 1995, a group of friends got together in a small theater on the Lower East Side to attempt something insane: write, rehearse, and present six new short plays, all in a single day. Originally intended as a one-off event, this season The 24 Hour Plays celebrated its tenth anniversary. Paper Magazine wrote “the quality of the plays is remarkable,” and the Village Voice adds, “here was the energy missing from the Ludlow scene... theatricality as life, as subversion, even survival.” The rotating cast and crew of The 24 Hour Plays have performed for sold-out Broadway and West End houses, as well as Off-Broadway, and in Chicago, Los Angeles, Montreal, and Bonn. Participants have included diverse talents from all levels— from Tony, Oscar and Pulitzer Prize winners to emerging talent and students.

I thought the Will Eno play was brilliant. I would like to read it. Is there any way to get the script?
