Play in a Day

Six professional Washington, D.C. area theatre companies wrote, directed, rehearsed and performed original plays based on similar themes in only 24 hours. The plays were presented at the ninth annual Play In A Day, a one-of-a-kind theatrical event.
Play In A Day kicked off on Friday evening, February 8th where playwrights and directors came together to receive their assigned themes and props. Playwrights then worked through the night to create their ten-minute masterpieces. As the sun came up, rehearsals begin as teams of directors and actors prepared anxiously to make the 8pm performance deadline on Saturday, February 9, 2013.
Participants included: Adventure Theatre MTC, American Ensemble Theatre, Flying V, Imagination Stage, Keegan Theatre and Olney Theatre Center.
